Brant Point Lighthouse, Nantucket, MA


I took a class from nationally known fiber artist Marcia Stein (http://www.marciastein.com/) last week where we created a mini quilt from a photo. What you see here is my 8 x 10 photo on top of the fabric image I'm creating. Still needs a few details but I think I'll be able to finish it today. This is the kind of project that can do 2 things: turn you into a better photographer and hook you on making photo quilts!!

That is a beautiful interpretation of your photo. I'm drooling. Reminds me a lot of Cynthia England's techniques.

Great job! Wow...it looks exactly like the photograph!

I think that if I learned how to do that both would happen. I can see many hours of photographing and then even more hours making photo quilts. What fun!

Beautiful rendition of your photo and very true to it. It's going to be a treasured quilt, I'm sure.
Aren't workshops wonderful!
