I love to try out new quilt/art techniques using my family as … well … guinea pigs. I’ve tried this applique process before, but saw a simplified version of it on Quilting Arts TV on September 5. I had good photos of my nephew and his moms, so I thought I would give it a shot. I am pleased with the results.  The photo is modified in Photoshop to create the applique layers, which I created in blues and purples. I also included a small photo of the family on a purple bar. All this was blanket-stitched onto a machine-quilted orange fabric. A few additional splashes of purple at the bottom, add some silver for a bit of flash, and there we have it.
