Trial and Error


Everything Stinks Till It’s Finished

Dr. Seuss

My friends and I decided to try to embed the photo into the River Quilt.
I spent last night and this morning trying to figure out how to do this.
Everything Stinks!
But, one does learn from trial and error…I hope.
River Run Quilt 
The problem with embedding the photos is fitting standard-size, small to medium photos within these strips.

I embedded a 5″ X 7″ rectangle/drawing. It would have a 1/4 ” white frame.

(My stash boxes are out of control…I know.) 
The photo looks too rigid and I think it breaks the flow of the river look.
We are going to look into ways to applique the photos in a rustic or folksy style.

I need to do more thinking and trial and error. 
Any suggestions are welcomed.

    1. We will be meeting on April 28 to shop for fabric and continue our discussion on what to do with the photos. One of my friends in this group does beautiful embroidery. I have been looking at Sue Spargo for outlining embroidery ideas.
      I am still researching different ways to do this, and will start making some mock ups to try things out.
