Steady As They Go
As mentioned in an earlier post, I was captivated by a quick photo taken by my friend of her parents while out shopping. They have been married for over seventy years. Her mom uses a cane, but her dad steadies himself by holding on to her pocketbook strap. There was just something so endearing about that photo that it made me smile and ask permission to turn it into an art quilt. The finished piece measures eighteen by twenty-four.
I'm glad it is completed as I have been asked to do a short talk later this week at my guild explaining my process of turning a photo into an art quilt. My process is always evolving, and I did a few things a bit differently in this piece than in previous ones. In my next post, I'll discuss some of those things and talk about an app that was new to me which made it super simple to create the perfect label for this piece.
