The inspiration piece for April's challenge was created by Vicki Welsh at Field Trips in Fiber.
After pulling fabrics from my stash, I thought that all of the colors match nicely to my Flea Market Fancy (FMF) bundle. But I had plans for the fabric. So I thought about how I could use snippets from the fabrics in a piece and decided to use them as a frame. Next was determining something to put in the frame.
I have been wanting to work on a project that features my dogs and thought about creating them in redwork or bluework. Now, I had a plan.
First, I talked to my mom to see if she could embroider something drawn by me. My mom sews by hand and creates beautiful redwork. I actually have many of her blocks that need to be turned into quilts.
I wasn't quite sure how to transfer a design, but I found pictures with a strong outline. I enlarged the pictures and printed them in black & white.
I traced the outline on a piece of white Kona and gave them to my mom to embroider in deep blue. I left the snout area of my schnauzer blank and told my mom to create something because I wasn't sure how to draw that outline.
