The sewing machine has been humming along all afternoon. Here’s all the center blocks, minus the sashing that goes in between. I plan to applique the leaves on the blocks before joining them so on to cutting leaves.
And I found just a FEW minutes to play in EQ7 because I wanted to check out some of the new things you can do with images. I barely touched the tip of the iceberg but in 15 minutes or so I had all these blocks created using various kalidascope type shapes.
The photo I started out with was this. One of the double impatient blossoms that got knocked off in the rain. I had the camera set on high sensitivity to really zoom in and the flower has almost a painted effect which is kind of neat. Probably couldn’t duplicate that if I tried.
and here’s the designs from just that one photo.
And then this decorative pepper plant photo turned into the images below. Would these images look great printed on greeting cards. A packet of them would make a great little gift idea!
But then I was having a little too much fun and I’m going to be in BIG TROUBLE. ROFLOL I thought what if I use a photo of a person – and I swiped a photo of dear friend Susan from her blog — good thing she’s in Texas and I’m in Wisconsin so it will take a while before she gets here to throttle me! It’s a lovely picture of her on her birthday. And I simply couldn’t resist turning her into kalidiscope blocks to see what they would look like. Yes – my name will be mud but I like them. 🙂 I should have used her DH’s picture instead but he would track me down! Love ya, Susan! (hmmm….joining the Quilter’s Protection Program and going into hiding now!)
