As some of you may have noticed, I love to take photos of nature.
Most of the time a photo will wind up as a "header" on my blog but the photo below will possibly wind up as a small quilt. This dead tree combo is in an area in our back forty. I've passed by it many times but this time
something grabbed my attention and I snapped several shots. It has character and I love the soft background as if mist or fog is framing the area.
So I'm going to study the photo, draw out some ideas, pull out some fabrics and think/ponder some more. Whatever I do, I'll post my progress, so if you're interested in a how-to, feel free to follow along and join in the process with me. Remember, this is a learning experience and I'm learning right along with you.
This project will work for " hand and machine applique`rs," steam-a-seam-ers and any other method that works for you. And I'm thinking that some of you advanced digitizers with those great machines could scan and digitize this photo into a program to stitch out. Now that would be really cool. I might even try that one. Now I'm really getting excited.
I'm already thinking about the perfect bark fabric..... I'm off to dig it out of my stash!!
