Here are some details about my project:
Category Quilting
Type Home Decor
Style Casual on

What materials did you use? Wash away stabilizer, canvas, batting, cotton fabric, color pencils, black poly thread (frame and mat) on

What are you most proud of? Accomplishing this while feeling so sad about the death of a daughter. It certainly puts everything in perspective. on

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Pay attention to the mirror image issue. Clearly this must have been a favorite photo as after I had already selected it and finished most of the project, I saw that this was the picture they chose to use in the funeral program -- however in the original she was facing the other direction. I don't think it mattered to anyone, but it had me mad I hadn't thought of that! on

You did a fabulous job. I am sure overall they are very pleased. The quilt shows that you put alot of tender loving care into this artwork. Thanks for sharing your masterpiece to us all.
