What are you most proud of? The hand painted background fabric and the photoshop work I did to remove some elements from the original photo and add the rooster. What advice would you give someone starting this project? I have taken several Craftsy classes that made this possible for me - Painted Pictorial Quilts, Annette Kennedy; Thread Art, Lola Jenkins; Linear Landscape Quilts, Gloria Loughman; Stupendous Stitching, Carol Ann Waugh; Design It Quilt It, Cindy Needham; and Art Quilting Pictorial Techniques, Wendy Butler Burns. Things I learned from each class are incorporated here.
