Taken with my trusty iphone - one of the greatest tools for making art quilts there is.
I'm constantly taking pictures and you never know when an inspiration will appear.
This is the first quilt I made from the photo. If anyone knows me I am always with at least one of my dogs if possible so this is the fantasy - sitting at the end of a dock in the summer with my best friend.
When I make a pattern, basically I enlarge the photo, trace the elements I want keeping it as simple as possible getting a line drawing. That drawing is then reversed for the pattern templates.
SO while I had the pattern already made and heard this song on the radio (from the 70's)
And I liked it so much I decided to make a pattern to sell of it, so of course had to make another to test out the pattern which you can buy here if you like.
This post will be under original design at the blogger festival and again I encourage you to check out some of the very talented quilters that blog. We are a happy bunch :-)
