Q&A with Wendy Lee

DottieDoe asked:
I really love this!
Wendy Lee answered:
thank you so much!
Loonwatcher asked:
Fabulous! Great job. Wish I had the courage to do that.
Wendy Lee answered:
Hi, TY, You can do it too, start small and let your imagination go!
LeilaniB asked:
Very nice. I love the warm yellow at the window.
Wendy Lee answered:
Thank you! I did some darker showing around the edges with my wax crayons. This is the first time I have used them and it was a little nerve-racking as I didn't want to ruin the quilt!
busy quilty asked:
nice what kind of material did you use for the firewood it looks so real?
Wendy Lee answered:
Thank you, it is fabric of wood that I found and I cut to make it look like the stack of wood.
marilynn s asked:
This some what looks like the home i live in,Did you take a picture of my house ? Lol Would you give a little more detail of how you did this, I would love to do a wall hanging of my little house on the paririe. Love it
Wendy Lee answered:
That's so cool Marilyn! I saw it in a photo and added more to mine. My parents lived in Colorado and it reminded me of some homes I saw out around Telluride. I fussy-cut my fabric and lay it out. I work from the back forward to get depth when you look at it on a wall. I have a project wall that I hang it on and step back and look at it. It has fusible webbing on the back of each piece to keep it in place while sewing. If I don't like some pieces, I simply take it off and rework the image to my satisfaction. I add a lot of detail which helps make it look real. I went this weekend to Valley Forge in PA and took photo's of buildings that I am going to do the same with. Wish me luck!!! Thanks for your interest! Good Luck, and start looking for fabric!
