Quilted Photography

Several years ago I took a quilt class from Tammie Bowser who does quilted photography.  It was just my kind of quilting: fast, easy, all machine, and unique.  Tammie is offering a free online quilt class that gives you an informative easy tutorial on how to do these quilts  

I'm in the mood to make another quilt.  I have the book, but for those of that don't, it is free to download for those taking the online class.  About the only other thing you'll need is fusible tricot, a printer, computer, and a photo.  You could easily create one of these in a weekend.  Here's a photo of the one I did.

It is my mom's junior class photo. I think I made it for her for Mother's Day one year.  This quilt consists of 1.5" squares sorted by  value and placed on a numbered grid according to their value.  I easily made this from start to finish in a weekend.  Watch the video and see how easy it is!  My quilt is about 24x30.
