    Pixel Picture for daughter and son-in-law.

Size:  78.0 KB This picture is completed with 1/2" squares, using 24 shades of blues, ironed onto a graph-grid which I drew onto iron-on interfacing, then had it professionally framed. If I remember correctly took about 2 weeks working 8 hours per day, to place the fabrics onto the grid. I did this pictures in 2011, and was not quilted and not sewn.

    I think this is fantastic I never could figure it out to make it look good and never to look like the person. You truly are talented.

    Wow! Great job. Very realistic. I actually bought some software that figures out the values, but haven't used it. It's from quite a while ago. I saw someone do that technique to make a ballet dancer.

    Your granddaughter is beautiful. You did a wonderful job. What a labor of love.
