It seems that is what my husband is doing in this photo.
When we visited my daughter and her family this year, we had some photos taken by a photographer (Joeri Cochuyt) while we were having lunch and playing games with our grandchildren. The photographer captured a great one of my husband and several of all of us, but this one was exceptional.
I decided to create a silhouette quilt of my husband for the last Project Quilting challenge for Season 8.
I used my Textures Quilt Pattern to create the texture background.
I also created this quilt as a "practice quilt" for the Vincent Van Gogh Cherrywood Quilt Challenge for 2017. I will be making that in April. I plan to make a very similar quilt for that challenge, but it needs to be 20" by 20".
I printed out the photo in draft and black and white to make a template for the silhouette. I used Lite Heat and Bond to adhere it to the black fabric for the silhouette.
My Textures Quilt Pattern was the perfect choice for creating texture with the blue fabrics for the background of my quilt. I made my pieces smaller in scale than the pattern instructions.
I used two layers of black 80/20 batting.
And wavy lines that intersect at the corners for the outside borders.
Yes, I always stitch my name into my quilts with the year.
