Thoughts and process:-
I love the murals in Mexico and last year in San Miguel Allende I had time to walk around the city and take photos…
I found an amazing venue that seemed to be a Cultural Art center and I decided to use one of the photos from that visit.
It's bigger than my 6", but then again, the rules are flexible.
I love going into a project and you just don't know how you're going to achieve it… but here I am early Saturday morning, I'm supposed to be exercising and I just want to quilt.
So far I've spent an hour and a half on the project and it works!!!!! wooow.
I printed my photo on Printed Treasures inkjet printable fabric. It was given to me in a goodie bag at Houston, so I'm doing what they ask us Tutors to do… sampling.
I ironed the printed fabric to a fat quarter of fabric simply because I needed something physical to hold on to while I quilt… I will cut it back when the project is finished.
In the photo below, I've quilted the background with green. I've used a free motion zig zag.
Then I experimented with adding colour to the background, working on the skin color… Now I've worked it out… I just need to finish it.!!!
The feed dogs are up.
I've also stitched a straight edge around the image.
