    another condolence portrait

    I don't send sympathy cards - I make quilts.
    Taking the photo from the obit, I create a portrait on a fat quarter to give to the family.
    This is John, hubby of one of the quilters in our employee quilt show.

    For me with little artistic ability, I find your ability to translate a picture into cloth AMAZING

    I'm certain people would rather have a sympathy card from me! I could never create something as wonderful as you have.

    Very nice!
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    That is wonderful.....do you use snips of fabric to do the portrait, or is it some type of pen or pencil? If it's fabric, is it fused applique? It really is interesting!!

    That is wonderful......long after the last card has been read/forgotten, your memorial will there. A great idea.
