Default Art Quilting

I am going to try some art quilting. Here are some links about landscape quilting by Nancy:

What I want to start on is a horse. It will be a gift to my niece for Christmas. So, hopefully I will finish it by Then!

Here is the pic I have chosen:

Has anyone here tried art quilting? Please share your work!

I haven't, but I have a wall hanging that was made by a friend. I love the way they are put together, with bits and pieces of everything.

I can't wait to see yours.

It's a start. Here are some pics of the drawing. I picked a paint by number picture on line. The other colored picture was a painting on line. However, I hope to match my mother's quilt she is making for my niece. So, we will be taking swatches of her pieces with me today.

I have been reading Impressionists Appliqué http://www.amazon.com/Impressionist-.../dp/1607054671

It mentions a few techniques but mostly talks of value. They mention 8 shades of value in the the subject. I will be trying to use 8 colors in the horse and still trying to keep the theme of colors my mom is using.

I'm looking forward to seeing it too!

Can we nag you if you don't keep posting progress pics?

Only so we can help you get it done by Christmas, of course...

It won't work Barb.
