I was working off this photo:
To make this wall quilt:
Using PhotoShop, I selected the area from the original photo that I wanted to use in the quilt, then printed it very lightly onto my fabric using grayscale, black ink only. The result was very faint. I then used Derwent Inktense pencils and a couple of different paint brushes to achieve the shading results. It's not exactly like the photo image, but I think it turned out satisfactory. This was my brother-in-law of 52 years, my oldest sisters husband, who passed away a few weeks ago.
My question is simply this: How would you quilt this? I was thinking to do a little bit of quilting on the tree areas, but as I began to do so I realized I'd have to be tying off the threads after nearly every tree/shrub! Now I'm thinking I might spend some evenings doing it by hand, but have never tried hand quilting before so it would be something new for me. I guess I'm up to the challenge. lol
I think I'd probably do something very simple, such as SID around the inner and outer borders, and maybe small stippling in the sky area?
Your thoughts on this would be appreciated!
Thanks for looking
