This is a WIP of a quilt I am creating using one of my photos. This is for the challenge...Take It Further. One of the challenge options is to create art that represents someone you admire. The pink petunias represent my mom. She always grew a pot of petunias on her front porch. I still grow a pot of pink petunias to always remind me of her happy attitude no matter what life deals to you. She went through great adversity and suffering and still found things to laugh about.
This piece is ready to machine quilt and applique. The white lines are the marked lines for quilting. I try to follow the lines I mark, but usually I go by what feels right once I get it under the machine needle. The good news about the lines is that they iron away. I used the Clover White Marking pen. This picture was also a test of my new lighting system using the daylight fluorescent bulbs. I didn't use a flash and shot it rather quickly. But I think it still looks better and the colors are true. I will post more about the details of the lighting system later. I'm off to machine quilt this piece.
