|I do not have a machine that does font embroidery nor fancy embroidery patterns, so I used photo imaging to print a font and to add a shadow image of Sylvie's name onto the fabric.|
|Here is the finished wall hanging.|
|Images of Sylvie were isolated and new backgrounds behind her were created on my computer, basically designing my own fabrics to match each of the pictures before I printed them onto white fabric.|
|This is one Paper Panache's MysteryBlocks http://www.paperpanache.com/|
|Wall hanging: Center panel "Crazy Bird "from Quilt Maker Magazine. This was one of my 1st attempts at quilting before I learned how to photograph them and how to make a good binding. "Maia" was my first attempt at free motion lettering.|
|This was the first time I manipulated the photos to isolate the subject and create my own backgrounds on the computer. Lots of fun, but time consuming. Someday, if I hit the lottery, I'll buy Photoshop.|

Free Motion Quilting on my short arm machine. My new obsession. See earlier post for details.
