|Villa with a View, 39 x 19|
Further down are some close-ups of the finished quilt. But first, here are some photos taken in progress...
The original panel, just after cutting it apart. (Click on any photo to enlarge.)
Tracing freezer-paper patterns from my original drawing of the arched windows....
...and using those to cut fabric pieces from Northcott Mills' Stonehenge fabric.
Fusing the fabric pieces with pre-applied Misty Fuse (which never gums up my needle!). The stone wall and inner arch pieces were also cut from Stonehenge fabrics. Don't know if these are available anymore, but I hope so. I use them often from my stash!
Next, some close-ups of the finished quilt, Villa with a View. I wish these were better photos, but between dim light/heavy clouds and my camera's automatic adjustments (time to get out the manual), this was not a good week for photographing in the studio.
This may end up being just the first of a series (something I've never done), because there are some other photo fabric panels lurking in my closet that could be cut up and spread out like this, too. And right now I have my eye on a fall scene that should work well with these triple arched windows, so...
Speaking of which---happy fall, everybody!!
