I played with a photo in Paint Shop Pro, cropped the photo, changed the colours, printed it out using poster print 3 x 3, then used the poster as my pattern and traced pieces I wanted to use.
Let me know which one you like.
Yesterday I posted an owl from my collection to another collector who lost all of hers in the Victorian Fires. It was difficult picking one of the family to send away but I did it and I really hope she likes him and he likes her.

I belong to the online group for quilt artists that live in Australia or New Zealand, or are citizens of these countries, living elsewhere.
It was a thrill to see the display of their journal quilts while I was at the Goldcoast with the SotAq09 exhibition.
Well done girls, great work this year and of course they are all being busy making this years journals.

The quilt in the background is the new piece I am working on - guess there's no keeping it to myself. The photographer liked it as a background.
The exhibition is now over and was a great success and is on its way to Townsville for display at Craftfest on the 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th of April.
This is my piece from the exhibition.
I took a photo of a pot plant, cropped the photo then played with the colours using Paint Shop Pro, experimenting with the programm not planning to turn it into a quilt. Then I had a thought, very dangerous sometimes.
I copied the photo into a work doc then printed a black and white photo, (using 3x3 in page layout) which then became my pattern. The outlines were highlighted with black marking pen, I then traced pieces using fusible webbing and ironed them to selected fabrics.
This was a fun project, different from anything I've done before and I'd like to do another one and experiment more.
