Can anyone help me?
I live in such a beautiful part of the world and i've recently been looking at scenery and thinking how wonderful it would be to paint it. Then i thought 'what if i could make it out of fabric instead'!
I've been reliably informed that to make a quilted picture is either a landscape quilt or a journal or miniature (can't remember how to spell that!) quilt. Is this correct?
Having gone back through some of my PP's, there are some fantastic examples but where on earth do i start?
Do i start with a photo? If so, do i then make a template from the photo? Some of the pieces will be quite small so do i applique these into a backing fabric and then quilt it?
The whole idea of the planning and then finding the fabrics and then putting it together is just beyond me! I haven't looked on the internet yet as i want to be sure i'm looking for the right thing.
I'm hoping somebody on here can help me?
