A few weeks ago, a friend of mine saw a piece she liked when I posted my 3-pieces-a-day in the Facebook Artists' Challenge. Entitled "Prairie Autumn", and inspired by a photograph taken by my late husband on an autumn drive well over a decade ago, I'd made 2 of these and both of them had been sold. Would I make her one?
Now...because I don't buy fabric in bulk (!), I really had to dig around to find comparable bits and bobs...but managed this morning to lay down the foundation.
|Photo and foundation|
Yep: sky, trees, prairie, fencing. The lines are pretty clear...
Then I added machine quilting:
|Every stitch is a line|
After I quilted the sky, I added the building and the fencing:
Just a wee bit of hand-stitch on the roof and grass, and it will be ready for the mat.
What are you up to this weekend? As you stitch, you might check out what's happening over at Nina Marie Sayre's Off the Wall Friday, to which I'm linking this post. :-)
Have a great one! Till next week...
