Portrait Quilts......Progress


I am enjoying working on portrait quilts again.




Captain America
This one is ready to go under the needle...





I really like the back side of Captain America too!





I work with the photo image closely as I quilt into the portrait.





At this point the starry background and the hair are quilted...




I am rounding up a few more portraits to take along with me to class next week:


Turkey Boy.......Front Side




Turkey Boy.....Back Side





Old School......Front Side




Old School.....Back Side





Wild Horses.......Front Side




Wild Horses......Back Side

This looks wild doesn't it?
This is a recycled fabric. I flipped the misprint over and printed the horses on the other side of the misprint.....it worked. It made for a interesting back side.

Today I am working with student images in Photoshop to alter them and get them printed onto fabric. Class is next Saturday.....I better get with it!

Hi Bunny,
I use a wide path printer. I wrote about it on my blog: http://luannkessi.blogspot.com/2010/12/new-printer-neocolor-ii-portraits.html
I use 100% white cotton sateen and iron it to freezer paper to stabilize it for printing.

My Best To You,
