Transfers & fiber cards

I'm off to meet a friend for coffee/breakfast...but thought I'd post two transfer fiber cards I mad this weekend. I printed pictures on tissue paper then embellished and finished.

I took a photo of some quilting I did as a sample piece. Then I printed the picture on the tissue paper and fused to a piece of background quilting I already had sandwiched. I quilted it and then added some fabric paints to some areas as well as french knots.

This one was a picture Dawn took at Belle Isle. Again, I just printed on tissue paper and fused to a sandwiched piece. I did some free motion quilting then added french knots in the middle.
I really have to get better at taking pictures. My work always seems distored and I know they are square (ok, rectangles) but they never appear that way. Great...another hobby to get into - photography! No, wait...that's what my daughter does. Guess I'll just have to have her take all my pictures for me. I'm off to eat and talk! Until tomorrow........
