    Absolutely!! First I drew everything out on paper. Once I was happy with the sketch, I scanned it and emailed it to April for her input. She let me know of any changes that needed to be done. Then I shrunk my sketches on a photocopy machine and put them on overhead transparencies. I used an overhead projector with the transparencies to mark the quilt. I used a blue water soluble marker for the white parts (the chess pieces) and I used a white chalk pencil to mark the red blocks which were the reaper, the bony hand and the Ankhs, along with the lettering April requested. I only marked the basic outline, all detail work was done without marking, like the feathers in the Angel wings, the detail on the reaper and the background chessboard with the skeleton hand.

    Thank you everyone for your encouragement and comments. This was definitely a different type of quilt for me and a good experience. I have now completed it and will post pics of the whole quilt tonight. If not for the lettering, the back could be a wholecloth. It looks amazing with the red and white quilting on a black background.

    You are either totally insane or extremely talented! I've never even heard of doing such things! Don't you know that there is a "box" you are suppose to be in? You, dearly lady, and so "far out" of the box that you must be one of those "trail blazers we hear about! Fantastic work!

    You have gone above and beyond the 'call of duty'. Hope you are getting paid enough for this extreme amount of work you have put into this project. Haven't even seen anything like this before. Thanks for sharing.

    That is THE most fantastic quilting I have ever seen. How wonderful that you have the talent to picture an idea in your mind, draw it and produce it using fabric and thread. I am in awe of you and your talent!
