Busy Day

 

Dsc03111Just got home from taking teenage Grandchildren and their friends out to dinner. It’s rather a nice experience.

Finished this little quilt today.
I call these
layer portraits because I choose how many layers of shading I wish to put into the portrait.
This is a miniature so I only chose four layers.

I decided to quilt the background quite heavily and then write small sayings in the border… but I didn’t want them to be too noticeable so I chose a fine thread and color that blended quite well with the fabric.

What is Layering? I change the photo to black and white first.

By manipulating the photo in a computer program I divide it into layers, from 2 to 8 layers and make my pattern from there. I will add a description tomorrow when I have more time
