    Hi all,
    I've been a member here for awhile, but have never posted pictures. Thought you might be interested in my recent stuff
    The kaleidoscope quilt was created for a challenge - had to symbolize 'spring' and had to be our own design. I created the kaleidoscope blocks and frames from photos my DH took - most are from ice and snow on pine trees and weeds, some are from flower pictures. Then I inserted pictures of babies (again my DH work).

    The denim shirt jackets were created one day when I had a couple of orphan blocks, and I realized that my stuff is on a bed or on the wall, but no body ever sees it, so I created a line of denim shirt jackets

    I especially love the quilt. It is so different from most of the quilts I've seen. I think the black really makes the blocks pop.

    The jacket is very nice also.

    I love the pictures you added....great touch. Right
    not I am making a Memory Wedding Quilt for my Goddaughter.
    I gave squares to all the guests to sign and now I
    am printing photos to go on each block. I need to
    go some sashing fabric because I don't like the stuff
    I bought before. It needs something more of color to
    make the photos POP. I hope it turns out the way it
    looks in my mind.

    Dorian,
    just a suggestion - in your photo editing software, saturate the colors, increase the amount of contrast, and increase the 'brightness' a little.
    That's how I got mine to keep the rich colors when I printed on the fabric

    Thanks for all the kind words. My internet connection is making me crazy, so I'm going to try putting the denim shirt jacket up tomorrow.
    sorry,

    WOW!!!! Your quilt is really beautiful! I like how you added the photos also! Great idea!

    I definitely want to add this one on my list of quilts to try!

    I have been trying to figure out how to make a snowflake block quilt without using appilques! This looks like it could be turned into snowflake blocks. Plus I have always liked the look of the kaleidoscope blocks!

    Thank you for sharing your pics and inspiration!
