Quilting "Spirit of the Kiva"
After quilting "Connor" recently I decided that by using a photo of the finished fabric face I could mark quilting lines on the paper to see if I liked the design.
These are the two photographs that I blended in Photo Shop Elements. The idea that I wanted to convey was one of spiritualism.
I felt that the blending of these two photos did just that. So instead of printing this one on paper I decided to use my new Epson 1100 and print it on fabric. With this printer I can print a 13" x 19" piece of fabric.
This size is large enough to actually quilt and get a better idea of what the large piece will look like.
I decided to start with the stone wall at the bottom of the ladder and moved on to shadow inside the Kiva.
I marked the shadow on the fabric.
And began quilting.
I got this far with the piece today and think I am on track. However, sometimes I feel that I am too close to the piece so any feed back would be appreciated.
