    Suzie, I like you idea and will give it a try. My original idea was to feature the fabric which was from a skirt I found at a thrift shop (some of my favorite fabric stores), but I think It needs to be dressed up someway. Thanks for the suggestion.

    @ post #818, Tracy: Very nice flowers. This is my first adventure to this art quilt thread. There is a lot to look at here and I am enjoying it.
    What techniques are you using to do these? They are wonderful.

    Welcome ube and Kohoeta! September challenge will be mounted on the first of the month.

    But meantime there are still a good 10 days to do a small 12x12 piece for the August challenge! C'mon you can try a quick technique or two to describe cold. (Run a search up in the top box for August challenge where it is described in full.) Remember these aren't supposed to be the masterpieces you see in the shows. This is a personal challenge to try something new, see what you get, discuss results and ask for input besides the usual 'that's lovely'

    Today I get to spend part of the morning on my WIP. I am doing a photo transfer of a cemetery angel. (What's colder than death after all) But I want to cut her up in about 6 pieces and then reassemble. Technically I can't figure out how to do this well as I want to keep the clear lines of the detailed photo. So today is an experimental session. Probably entailing a lot of heat and bond.

    How are the rest of you doing out there? Let's see some WIP or some 'dones'.

    Cold Challenge

    Hi all,

    Here is my experiment for this month.

    This was a photo of a cemetery angel. After all what is colder than death?!

    I wanted to use this photo for a later larger piece.

    But first I needed to experiment with how I could cut it up and still have a recognizable photo. I wanted to get more color into it as well.

    I need to match everything up after the cuts and color insertion or I no longer had a photo. So there were technical issues. Eventually I used glue and strips and sewed either side, which worked OK. But I am not happy with the way the color shows through and I am going to use a different technique when I do the next piece.

    Then I also wanted to decide on quilting amounts and design for the photos...what should be made more textural and what should be left alone?

    This little test answered many of those issues and there are certainly things I want to do differently on the bigger piece. Practice does after all make us better at all this and opens up new ways of creating. And some of them are awful and don't work well at all. But take a risk and try something. I learned a lot and will use that for the major piece-- which is next on the list and should be much more effective now.

    Now what are you all up to???? The clock is ticking here!!!!!
