During Covid with a broken right wrist I took another on-line Photoshop Elements class and learned how to use my new Brother Luminaire embroidery/quilting machine. Both classes were invaluable. I hope I am able to compose my next couple of quilts in photoshop on my computer.
Meanwhile, I finished a OBW panel quilt from a panel named Gray Stallion from Focus on Fabric. Nancy Fuller makes the most beautiful panels from photographs and layers them in photoshop to make incredible panels. She uses a commercial grade digital process on high quality quilting cotton for a soft, brilliant color with exceptional clarity. This Gray Stallion jumps right out of the quilt. The hexagons are 3”.
As a challenge I took this photo in 2010 in Uganda while on mission of these 3 little girls and boy in their ragged worn clothes walking away. They were so cute and you can tell how important friends are. I photoshopped a map of Uganda over the children and printed the picture on fabric. Using my new machine I inserted some quilting designs over their clothes and in the background. I framed it with a batik I purchased in the fabric mart in Uganda. It’s far better than I could ever had done free motion.
