August 15, 2019 – Photo to Art Quilting

LNT member Barbara is very skilled at creating beautiful art pieces from favorite pictures.  The cardinal was created from a picture on the cover of a National Geographic magazine.  Notice how she added shading with differed colored thread.

Barbara is working on an art quilt of her home, with a fence in the foreground and other details still to be added.

She is also working on a closeup of a grasshopper.  Notice how she is blending the red into the green in the branch by stitching into those areas.

Here is the progress a couple members made during the class.  Although it’s hard to believe, this is their first time to do this technique!  Great work!

Piecefully yours,
