A finished quilt is always a happy occasion. I thought I'd share the process with you.
It will take a couple of posts to get the stages in. This is a photo I took of my Granddaughter, Amy as she comforted Little Keith.
First the sketch, this is under the white fabric. It will be my painting guide.
Next, I add shadowing with paint on wet fabric, it spreads and fills in the area nicely.
When dry, background and outlining is done with dark colors.
I try to add a little color to see what will happen and it starts to come to life.
More details added
finally you can see things really taking shape.
Then I add lots of thread and quilt the whole thing. It's finally done!
