Appliqué created from coloring book

Wanted to create appliqué from this cute toucan in a coloring book I found at the Dollar Tree. He looks like he would have personality. I can vision him to be very colorful on a tropical background fabric.

Choosing some bright batik fabric like this striking red made him stand our. Love the background fabric I found, it had that tropical look to it.

Sewing the details on I really like that look he has, kind of reminds me of my husband and the look he gives me sometimes. LOL

Needing to work on my free hand quilting skills and thought I would give this a try. I am creating a raw edge quilt and I want lots of texture so I thought some raw edge appliqué would look really nice.
