    This is a project I finished this winter. I recognize it's a little different subject matter, and certainly not one for everyone to like.

    I started with a photo, enlarged it on a photocopier and drew a 1" grid on it. All the pieces in the pieced version are 1" finished, though each of those might have had several seams if the colours landed that way.

    I took it to be stretched as after all this work, I didn't want to learn on this one, and risk ruining it! It's about 24"x27".

    For comparison, I'm posting both the original photo and my pieced work.
    WONDERFUL !!!!!!!!!!!!

    Yes ... they stretched it on a special board (forget the name), It's kind of like foam core in the centre, but very hard on the outside, so it won't bend and warp as they stretch. The foam like centre lets them stick pins into the edge until they have it fully stretched and allows adjustment if needed while doing so.

    Board was covered first with a layer of batting to allow some quilted padding. Then framed.
    Great tip!! Thank you !

    Wonderful.

    She was shown as a 5 year old, winning a Red Ribbon (First Place here in Canada) ... as well as Best Bred and Owned.

    Glad she got to see it, before she went back to her non-internet-world! :)

    It's probably the piece that I am most proud, just because of the uniqueness and the story behind it.

    Wow, I love what you did. I have thought about doing something like that with some flower pictures, but don't know where to begin. Who is the gentleman in the picture? Is he going to get the quilt?
