InstructionsI took a class for quiltartist Marilyn Belford at Quilt University on line. The class was called "Fabric Potraits".
You have to use your own photo and design it yourself under the direction of the instructor.
Type of item: Home Decor
Cotton and polyester fabrics, batting, polyester threads, monophilament thread, steam-a-seam lite2, tracing paper, pen, marking pen, scissors, a photo for inspiration and to refer to, Photoshop or likewise for seperating the colors on the photo.
What was your inspiration?
The Norwegian quiltartist Bente Kultorp Andresen. http://www.bentekultorpandresen.com/
She makes most pictorial quilts, but also some art quilt. She also hand dye fabrics for her
own use and for sale.
What are you most proud of?
That I quilted it and that was when I didn't know anyting about quilting and quiltmotifs. I looked a lot at Leah Day's website for inspirations. I didn't know how to attache the binding, so I refered to a little handbook. I didn't come out well, so one year later, when I had learned more, I remade the binding.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Get a good instructor to guid you!
