I've been away this week because my laptop computer acquired an expensive virus. It makes me really angry that I have to pay someone to get rid or a virus that I had nothing to do with. The computer geek had to delete all my programs, but luckily he could save my files. Oh well, I'm up and happy now.
I have been working this week on the machine quilting of the portrait I made of my grandson Connor.
I prepared to quilt by taking a photograph of Connor's fabric face and printing it on paper. I also laid the original photograph of Connor beside the fabric face. I used the printed copy to draw a design on so I would know what I wanted to do.
One of the problems I have with machine quilting is getting to a section and not knowing where to go next. By using the photo to sketch on it gave me a much better idea of where to go and how to get there. It's actually like drawing.
Tomorrow More quilting.
