What I've done so far:
- I've photographed my model and selected the best posed position.
- I've selected other images from the internet to best fit the model shot and made a collage.
- I created a pattern from the collage image.
- Purchased fabric.
- I cut the pattern out of the fabric.
- I pieced it together on a back piece of fabric (the two greens).
- I've started baste stitching into place by hand.
What I have left to do:
- Machine satin/button hole stitch.
- Add details by hand to the faces of the lady, the sheep and lambs.
- Cutting and add all the little different color circles for the hair. (This part is the most tedious but fun - can't wait).
- Border the quilt top - haven't decided on those colors yet.
- Make the quilt sandwich by stitching it together with the batting and back piece using a nice stitch pattern.
- Bind the quilt edges.
|I love this color scheme. Wish I had it for my bedroom. Lots of earth tones and purple with accents of pink and blue and thrown sporadically in the hair will be some soft oranges and yellows.|
|Everything's all cut out with a quarter inch. I love the two lambs.|
|Basting, what fun. I used fabric glue in the past and it got pretty stiff (and messy). So, I'm trying it this way by hand to reduce a lot of shifting. The lady's face is drawn in as well.|
