our sweet niece is getting married in October … her sweetheart’s family is making a wedding quilt with squares created by various family members …the future bride and groom picked these cotton fabrics to work with
I was so excited about being a part of this … but must admit sewing a straight line is not my strong suit (no laughing!) … lucky for me a talented and super nice friend came to the rescue and sewed the fabric pieces around my photo transfer and got me ready for the stitching … if you haven’t tried Lesley Riley’s Transfer Artist Paper (TAP) I highly recommend giving it a whirl … it transfers so quickly and effortlessly you can hardly believe your eyes!
it is washable and can be ironed too … so versatile
the photo was taken on the beach (it may have been their engagement photo) … it was altered in photoshop by the photographer … I knew it would make a perfect focal point for our quilt square
all I had to do was a little blanket stitching and embroider our names in the lower right hand corner … as requested … it has already arrived in California … can’t wait to see the finished quilt!
