On my wall today is the beginning of a small quilt based on a photo of a North Dakota scene from out summer vacation. Nothing is sewn down yet. I’m living with it and studying the value. I
wasted time explored using the photo tracing tools on EQ7 for this, but couldn’t quite get to printing it quilt-sized. This was such a simple scene that I just free-handed the cartoon on freezer paper. Then I cut the sections apart and ironed them to the front of the fabrics for cutting. They’re sticking to the piece of muslin with spray adhesive. This is different work for me, but I’m enjoying it.
In the meantime, I’m finishing the first sewing step in the Scrapitude Mystery Quilt on Quilting for the Rest of Us. There’s plenty of time to start if you’d like to join us.
I’m linking up with Design Wall Monday at Patchwork Times.

Nice start on the landscape 🙂 you could do a collage type thing using a novelty fabric for what ever you want in the foreground. Looking forward to seeing it progress. What type of things did you see on the trip? Cows? Tractors? So many novelties out there, ill bet you have a “stash” of them as I do.

Love the scenery, Valerie! We saw scenes like this in Iowa and Nebraska while driving West 2 yrs ago. I can totally imagine some embroidery stitches around the barns and quilting in the sky. Can’t wait to see what you come up with.
