A Blog in Progress

This is my first posting on my first blog and I have to admit I'm not sure how this is going to go, but it's full speed ahead. Since I don't really know where to start, I'll just jump right in.

I have some photos of what I'm currently working on. As soon as I figure out how to post the photos, I'll show you what I've been doing the past few days.

It started with a photograph:

Which I then printed as a 2x2 poster:

And then I traced all of the shapes onto transparencies:

And then I fused and arranged and pressed the shapes onto the background. And so, I've gotten this far:

The next step is to use thread to blend the shapes and define the flowers, and then on to quilting. I'd love to know what you think!

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Wow, girl, you're a quick study! Your first post is beautiful, and I love the photo at the top! A+

  2. Yay Mary Ann! The piece looks good, I especially like the mustardy highlights on the red tulips. Was the blog hard to do?
