Raw edge applique

Hundreds of little pieces of fabric


Much like a puzzle of colors Linda made a interesting bird picture for her family room. I am lucky to have smart friends and I am always in awe of what my friends are learning. So when Linda was taking classes in Raw edge appliqué I thought what a lot of steps! But the result was fantastic. You can take any photo or picture and sew hundreds of little pieces to make a beautiful picture much like a painting. In her class she learned all the different steps you need to create your picture.Linda also learned how important color value is.

It turned out really good.
                                                        Different shades of fabric are used
                                              to make her picture


                                        A picture says a thousand words

                                                                 

                                                        Some steps along the way
                                        to making her picture.
                                                                                                            
This is the picture she started with

                                               You mark all the lines


                                                  Linda used this as a base
                                    to sew the individual pieces of fabric
                                    on the parrot and then the birdfeeder.
