Photoshop Layers Quilted?

Here is where I am starting on my new project. I LOVE the colours in this photo. It is a Layers project I have been doing on Photoshop and it is a blend of two pictures, a blue iris and a pink saucer magnolia. The pattern is VERY complex and another time , I would layer the pattern too! Anyway, I have made a wee start. Trouble is, it is big and I keep running out of fabrics so I had to dye a bit more this afternoon. Here is the story so far ....
It looks a mess because it IS a mess at the moment. I am just beginning to build up the substrate and will work on the detail once this ground layer is all in place. You can see a few of the pattern pieces and you will appreciate how complicated this will be, but I am up for a challenge :-) The original photo, enlarged to 8"x 10" is lying on the top left of the quilt. I will keep you posted!

I am sorry to have been so scarce lately. I did not do Inchies this week. Just TOO BUSY! Sorry. I am working hard on the new computer , taking classes at Apple, teaching a quilting class  and generally living life in the fast-ish lane. Time seems to be flying somehow.

Had a great long visit with our daughter on Sunday. They had an earthquake on Saturday last at 12:08PM , magnitude 4.3. No damage but it rattled the house for a bit. I had NO idea Tennessee was such an active earthquake zone but it is the second most active in the USA! Those old Appalachians are not settled down  yet!

Well, on that cheery note, I believe it is time to shut down for the evening. I will post this to the needleandthreadnetwork.blogspot.com. There is always lots to see there!

Sorry! Told you I was learning a new computer, Mac instead of the old PC. NOW I see how to do the link for TNTN properly! Sorry Monika :-)

  5. this will be fantastic when it's done if the photo is anything to go by, and what a beautiful image to create from. It makes me want to investigate Photoshop, but I rather think it's the skill and talent of the creator, not the porgramme!

  7. I also love your photo - the colours are superbe. Much work, to dye because you have not enough fabric. I can imagine.Lovely that you were together with your daughter. The earthquake 4.3 is quite a trembling. We had one years back 5.4. It was like a truck running over the roof - it was in the Vosges. I am looking forward to your progress.

  9. So neat that you dye your fabrics. I call that intrepidity! Your process seems complicated and so artistic! I will follow along, so curious to see the result! I really like those colour hues and to think that they are or your own design.
