Simple Still Life


simple still life 8/27 Posted by Picasa

Well, it would be hard to get too much closer to the deadline.

Here is what I did. I tried fooling around with Deb’s photo in Photoshop. I really liked the negative space in the image I saw. I decided to make a small piece in fabric and everything is fused. I would ordinarily have pieced the background and appliqued the elements but this was fun. I had hoped to quilt it but haven’t gotten to it yet. It is about 10-1/2 inches square.

Thanks Deb!

And the way the shoe is so little and cute! That shoe stumped me, but it really fits into the lightheartedness of your quilt.
