After taking a closeup photo with a digital camera, I printed the picture, traced an outline onto tracing paper and transferred that to fabric. Then I free motion quilted those lines. I didn't use any filler motifs like tiny pebbles or stippling this time but I could have.
I recently had my private retreat and I was thinking about this challenge. So I grabbed my camera and looked around the motel room. The very first thing I noticed was a photo on the wall including this:
Using the macro setting, I took the following photo.
I printed this out as a 5X7 picture and transferred it to the fabric. This is the resulting quilted piece.
This is an enlargement of the edge of a mirror.
And this is the resulting quilted piece.
I really enjoyed this exercise and am anxious to try some other designs - the bark on various trees, different leaves, grasses, the upholstery design on a chair,... The list is endless!
