Grape Picking

DFeganGrapePickingQuiltography3This quilted piece is for the QAK quiltography 2015-2016 challenge.  This is piece number three based on the photo below provided by the Lexington photography club.  For my interpretation, I gave the girl red hair to represent the red from the leaves.  After quilting and attaching to my canvas I added leaves.  The leaves are made from fussed fabric and quilted then hand sewn to the quilt.



Here is a picture of the pieces fused together without any stitching.IMG_5840
