    Would you like to see ??

    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.

    What do you mean "stretched"? Like a canvas, on a wooden frame?

    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.

    Thanks!! Honestly, I didn't follow any technques. I guess I somewhat did a paper piecing concept, but no paper piecing was done.

    Do you have any links where people have done similar?

    As I said earlier, the subject matter isn't for everyone!

    I'm proud of the results ... and hope that others can appreciate the results, and perhaps inspire them to other projects, even if the subject isn't for them!
