Greetje Hein – Photoshoot

Let’s swing together

Inspiration:  Our granddaughter especially likes to pose so I can make a picture. So she loved to be the subject for photoshoot.

I took a picture of both our grandkids sitting on a swing-set. I used a pop-up setting on my camera. The picture is enlarged and painted on white fabric with fabric paint. The background is commercial fabric, appliqued with fusible web. I cut out the painted kids and fused it also with fusible web.

The quilt is free-motion quilted with rayon thread.
