Distraction

I don't really have any interest in making a quilt this way (might be a good way to plan a watercolor quilt?), but I do appreciate the patchwork nature of mosaics (photo, ceramic, etc.) and had some fun playing with this site recently.



I tried it out with two photos from Christmas 2005 in France - I was thinking of that trip a lot as I worked on the mothers' day gift for my mom. The first photo is Chateau Villandry where we went on my 30th birthday (great gardens - many quilt inspiring photos stored away for someday); the second, a outside flower shop in the walled city of Dinan.

That's so cool! A quick question - how did you save the images to put on your Blog? I tried and it didn't save correctly - could you share how you did that please.

If you right click, it just saves the row you click on (I made that mistake) - but there is a download button on the page after it's finished being created. Hope that helps!

Neat! But that would be a lot of little pieces of fabric to cut and sew!!

I have always been amazed at landscaped art quilts. Thank you so much for sharing another way of creating this process and your great link! I think I am going to be needing a couple of extra lifetimes!

What a fun site - a lot of playing could be done there *s*

I imagine sewing landscape quilts must take a lot of patience. I like the idea of a big picture being made from lots of little ones though.
