I've wanted to make a quilted portrait for a while and decided to have a go a few days ago using a photo of my son, Alex. I used a free ipad app called 'Poster Me' which changed the photo into four layers that I could enlarge, print and then trace onto Vliesofix.
It was an easy process and the advantage of using a free app is that it is very simple and easy to use for a first attempt.
I'm very happy with the result and it actually looks like Alex!

I'm also enjoying free motion quilting and each time it gets easier!


  1. Well done Phil! Your FMQ looks great, as does your quilt. Does Alex like it?

  2. You managed all that in the last few days?! Wow! I am impressed!

  3. It was a bit like painting by numbers...
