Painted Pictorial Quilts »
InstructionsI am not done with this yet, but so far I painted the sunlight down the valley as best that I could, with limited use of the colors that I had in stock. Just could not locate that one cream color or lighter blue, so I mixed. I think I have this right, where the center is lighter, so the depth takes your eye there.

What was your inspiration?
I have painted on fab before but never understood the depth thing and that is so important if your going to go from simple flowers to a scene
What are you most proud of?
Always, proud that I got started. If it is in my mind, at some point...I need to do it.
Something NEW I am adding to this piece as I work on it, is the threads that I left in place to act as sides of the trees. I first cut them off and then all of a sudden I was putting them back because they look like the sides of the trees and give them dimension. So I was sewing on the edging of the trees stopped lifted my needle and without cutting, moved it down the tree and then inserted the needle again and began working on the edging again. This extra piece of thread acts like the line on the side of the tree, I think it is neat.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Start slow and try things out, take pictures and get other peoples opinions. Don;t be too quick to complete the piece.
