Close Up was a very interesting challenge. After thinking and rethinking a number of possibilities I decided to revisit the swan photos I had worked with some years ago. With the aid of Photoshop I manipulated the photo to give it a painterly effect and once printed it was heavily stitched. This quilt combines two fascinations, the digital world and my love of stitch.
You have some wonderful quilts coming your way Lorraine I hope this one also gives you pleasure.
