Anne does not limit herself to photos.
The original of this design was painted by Anne's aunt. Anne photographed it and then printed it on fabric creating the most delightful cushion. (oooh, look at all that delicious Bonnie and Camile in the background.)
I was captivated by this quilt.
Anne used her Photoshop skills to rework some photos so that they took on the look of black ink sketches.
A brilliant idea. Indeed much of the reason the photos Anne printed look so good was her skilled use of Photoshop to tweak the colour saturation and tidy up the photo backgrounds. Looks like I'll be asking our family's computer wizz, Jack, to help me here.
It was particularly nice to meet lovely Rhonda, who reads this blog regularly. Hi Rhonda. All the ladies in the group were so friendly and charming - quilters are just the best people.
Many thanks to Anne, who so kindly shared her skills and knowledge with us. We were all very lucky to go home with lots of ideas and inspiration and free samples Matilda's Own Inkjet Printable fabric. You can buy this from Sewn and Quilted and they do have an on-line shopping service
All in all a wonderful girlsworld outing.
This is so beautiful.
Just one of a divine selection of free charts very generously shared HERE at gorgeous The Drawn Thread. Many many thanks to Cynthea.
