Of course I was in the middle of quilting my broken quilt when it died. So I shifted gears and started to really think about the toxic barrel quilt.
Pattern enlarged and printed out and taped together. The red grid lines help me line up the pieces.
Value study in which I shifted the values around from the original photo.
Colored study made on my iPad Pro with my Apple Pencil. Love this Pencil. I decided to go with a color scheme for the barrels of blue purple and blue green. The corrosion with be in yellows.
Some of my fabrics picked out.
The other thing I have been working on is to create an artistic photo image for a quilt challenge. Here are some of my images so far. These are overlays with several layers.
Thanks for reading.
