Has anyone had any experience transferring a drawing to fabric?
Here is a picture of me drawn by my 5 year old darling granddaughter Allegra.
Text on the drawing.. All sounded out and written by a 5 year old.. no help from a grownup.

During 2016 I will be trying out different ideas from other quilters just to feed my own creativity and get new ideas.
I will also be doing my own quilt patterns and mystery quilt patterns during the year. I usually do a mystery quilt in February and October.
This year I will be doing a mystery in April and October due to other commitments.
My first inspirations for the year come from Freddy Moran and Gwen Marston.
I purchased their book
“Freddy and Gwen Collaborate Again: Freewheeling Twists on Traditional Quilt Designs”
and fell in love with their ideas.
Especially the idea of LIBERATED QUILTING.
Gwen has written several other books on LIBERATED QUILTING ideas.
Here are my first ventures.
A Liberated Strips Halloween Quilt for Jake. (Fabric gifted to me by Clothworks.) Based on a quilt done for Freddy’s husband.
A Liberated Frog House Quilt for David.
A Liberated Log Cabin Elephants quilt for Hannah.

Here is a wonderful wedding quilt from Fred. He made a KING SIZE wedding quilt for some newlywed friends. They chose the fabric. He used my Plaid for Dad pattern. What a fabulous undertaking. The newlyweds are loving their wedding quilt.
Caroline in Spanaway, WA made this gorgeous Two Color Mystery. She is truly a recycler. The quilt was made from light weight drapery fabric found at a local thrift store.
Here is a Two Color Mystery Quilt from Terri. The red and yellow look great together.
Joyce S. just responded to me. I am so happy she got back to me. Here is her response.
This is my quilt, a baby size I made for a local charity and donated through my quilt guild. It is backed with fleece and quilted on my home sewing machine.
