Getting a new quilt shop in town helped in gathering enough
coordinating fabrics for the quilt. But which ones for what?
Pinks and browns, blues or
blacks and grays with a bit of teal?
The teal wins!
I tried out several body shapes. I finally decided to go with just the upper body as
I would prefer the quilt not be long and skinny. At least not this time.
I removed the wings from the original painting so that I could
add larger wings to the quilt surface.
Also with the magic of PSE I was able to change the background of the painting
to match the fabric nearly perfectly. Now that's just plain cool. I love it.
The body fabric when just laid down to get an idea of
the fabric combinations I want to use is not as curvy as the paper pattern
which I just might like better. We'll see.
So now I just sit with it for a while longer as she continues
to speak to me before proceeding to cutting it all out.
