i took the pledge
i join, i took the pledge, this is a group of quilters who pledge to show the progress of their quilts on their blog. i pledge to show from start to finish of making my quilts. now this is going to be hard for me because i like to just show you my finish product. trying to explain is going to be the hard part ,so i hope i can explain clearly so that everyone understand.
so right now i am going to show the quilt that i was working on with the new technique that i was teaching myself from a book. here is the finish product of the quilt that was in the book. i like this one better that the one of my cousin with the big hat. i hope you like it.
now that i made this pledge i will explain what i am now working on. a friend wants me to make a portrait quilt of her sister. i usually make the portrait quilt no large than 8" x 11" or 11" x 15". but once i got the original picture the way i want it on the computer, i realize that i did not want to make this into a small quilt. i didn't think that i would get a good result if i did it small. i believe that this portrait will be about 17" x 22". i hope i can do this and i hope she will like it. i blew the picture up by tiling the pictures into 4 pieces and taping them together. my printer will not do tiling and and i don't know how to tile a picture on photoshop element. so here is a picture of the four pieces taped together. i use to outline the different gray scales, but since i have done so many of these i don't have to outline the grayscaling any more. this picture is just grayscale to number 2 level. not like some of other portraits that were level 4 grayscale. i have not decided what color i am going to make this portrait. check back next week and i will show you what i have done and also about the cookout at my house for the quilting bee that i am in. here is the picture that i am working on.
