Here's Keira shouting with joy! This started as an assignment for our Loose Threads art group. Take a photo, manipulate it in photo shop and then make a quilt depicting "Joy". Not really knowing what to do, I cut it up, fussed it on, quilted it and added beads (which I am not quite done with). When I showed it to her, she knew who it was. She is 2 1/2.
Our next project was adding three dimensional flowers and using the word "Soul". Here is my 12 x 12 inch "Heart and Soul" quilt that I am going to send off to the SAQA online auction.
I took a class Saturday from Judy Sisneros through the Common Threads quilt guild. She was a fine teacher but I hate my quilt. I wish I had just used my own fabric ideas. I can't decide on a border either. I took the class because I had the book but I think I would have liked it better if I had done it on my own. Help! What do I do with this? I am stuck on what direction to take for the border.
