Jack and Ava

This is grandson Jack and granddaughter Ava. They are the typical siblings who get in each others way but always take up for one another when needed. Once scanned into photo shop it is converted to gray scale then goes thru a series of filters and "clean up". I then made a template to use to cut out my pieces in black and sewed them onto my light fabric. Another way is once you get the silhouette you want to use print it out on fabric,back it with some batting and stitch around the black edges instead of making a template, cutting pieces out and sewing the on individually. You can find complete directions in the June/July 2011 issue of Quilting Arts magazine.
