Do a bit of research on the internet as I know there is a site out there that tells you how to take a photo and make a quilt from it. Some ladies in my quilt group were doing it. Let me know if you can't find it and I'll ask them next meeting. Your house would be awesome on a quilt!
Enjoyed your pictures. Nice work. Remind me of Maine.

diane welcome to the mini madness world.. I love your quilts in your portfolio.. the puffins are my fav.. cause I have never seen a quilt like that and you done it so well.. hope to see your interpretation of a mini come visit soon
Nice to hear from you, I am really enjoying doing my quilt, find it very relaxing. One nice thing about the paper piecing, you can take it anywhere to work on it. I love your quilts, very talented lady. I am finding it hard to find a store around here to buy my paper pieces. One place has to order them in all the time,others say they just don't have the demand for them. We have a grandson who moved to Newfoundland a few months ago , so are planning a trip there later this year. Hope you have great quilt stores there........Jan
Dianne, you do gorgeous pictorial stuff. I love it. You asked about making a pattern of your cottage. It is relatively easy to do this yourself. You will need a piece of clear plastic or mylar (like an overhead transparency) and a fine black marker. Then, place this mylar over your photograph and trace out all the details you would like to include in your pattern. You can make it as detailed or as simple as you like, by either including or leaving out some of the finer details. Then, take this transparency to your local copy shop and enlarge to whatever size you want, and there you have your pattern. Hope it works for you. I have done several tiny (5x7) size appliques this way and am very happy how they turned out. I will photograph and post some photos on my page and then you can see them. They have not been bordered or quilted yet, but you can see the picture itself. Phyllis
Hi Diane. I am glad to have you as my friend. Thanks for the request. Home is PEI to me but I am now living in Northern Ontario for the past almost 32 years. I am interesting in joining the English Paper Piecing workshop but not sure where to go to order my suppies but I will keep searching. I am determined to find out but need to find the price first. Hope to talk to you again on this chat line.
Hi Dianne: Many thanks for the birthday wishes - today I will receive a discount at the quilt shop where I teach that is one-half of my age! Probably the best (and maybe the only) thing about getting older! What on earth are you doing up at 2:40 a.m. - or was that the time here and you are in another part of the country??? Got to go and finish my shopping list - many thanks and a hug to you, KLB
Good Morning Dianne; How is the weather up there this morning? It is sunny here and making me think I should start my spring house cleaning work. However I think I will go to the sewing room for a while. Have a great day.
Thanks for the invite; I love hearing from Newfoundland (I grew up in Springdale). You do beautiful work; I've wanted to do a Newfoundland quilt for several years and will get around to it some day (so I promise myself). I just wish I had more time and/or would use the time I have to sew more!
