I wanted to share this mixed-media art quilt I recently made using a photo of my great-grandmother, Helen Netcott Main. She was probably around 19 in this photo - I thought the silhouette was stunning! I wish I could see what she is holding in her hands.
I printed the photo onto Extravorganza and layered it over paper and fabric and quilted everything together. There are layers of tulle, rub-ons and stitched down chipboard letters, too.
This week our challenge in Top Designer is to make an altered project, so, Nan & I hit the thrift stores yesterday and got some goodies!! I have been feverishly working today on my project! I am happy with the result so far. We'll see! lol
