I’ve been blowing up squirrels.
Not, please understand, literally. Heavens! I’ve been blowing them up on the computer.
It occurred to me that I could create appliqué templates by scanning in material, and enlarging the patters. Obvious, I hear you say. But I had never tried it — or thought of it. This came about after an evening with the girls: I came to them with a half-finished Christmas quilt that had a huge white space I wanted to fill in. They suggested that rather than just quilting it to pieces, I could do some appliqué. Great idea!
Here is one of the little chaps, tantalisingly upside down (because once I’ve imported a picture into WordPress I don’t know how to rotate it…).
Happy scanning! JJ
