While I was out of the cold wind today and sitting inside with my heater working nicely I worked on my pixelation quilt. I was watching Bonnie Hunters QUILT CAM over at Quiltville.blogspot.com .
I have glued all the 4500 little 1/2" squares onto the backing of a thin vielene.
Now Johns face is complete. He shows up so well.
I am surprised at how much it looks like the photo.
This photo of my son was taken only a few months before he passed away. This is a beautiful way to have him in my lounge with the family all the time now.
I am doing a workshop with my Heathcote group. Liz Allen put the photos into a computer
programme and then printed off a pattern for us to follow. We had to purchase 16 different colours to get the effect. Then we had to cut them into 1/2" pieces. Yes, all 4500 of them. Now they are glued on the next step is to raw edge appliqué them. That will be started next Wednesday. I'm not sure how that will go but we are going to give it a try.
(I might try to take another photo of it in better light tomorrow)
