    Default How to make an applique from a photo

    I've had this saved forever but remembered it when the collage question came up. I'm sure you have all seen fabric postcards with pictures and machine applique. This is like that but from one of your photos. Just a simple tutorial.

    That is interesting!

    When Dolores and I went to the quilting museum in Paducah last year, there was a quilt made from a photo of a little boy and girl. It was made by their grandparents, and they are all from Japan. I'd post a picture of it, but it is on my old computer and pictures have not been transferred over yet.

    If you ever get the opportunity to go to that museum, do it!

    That would be quite a labor of love. I would love to see the side by sides of that!

    I did run across a Japanese artist that does something similar. She wrote a few books on sewing. I wonder if they might be related!

    It was nothing like that. The one hanging was quite elaborate and looked like an actual photograph.
