This is a continuation of a previous post about the making of the Northwest Garden Lady art quilt. I take tons of pictures of plants in my garden and wanted to use some of my own photos for the flowers and foliage to give it a Northwest feeling. Here are some of the pictures that I used. They include zinnias, chrysanthemums, hellebores, Japanese anemones, coneflowers, and feverfew.
All of the pictures were sized to the right scale in Photoshop and printed onto EQ Printables Photo fabric sheets. They were fused to the background, along with fabric leaves.
I also love our strawberry tree and made the tree out of more pictures.
I made the face, wine glass and glove out of fabric pieces and added Steam-A-Seam to the back, so that they can also be fused to the background. Here's a progress picture.
So far, so good.
