For A Friend


Update for kwiltmakr 
I used colored pencils to draw the scene and added minimal shading.
Next I machine embroidered the words.
Then I sandwiched the quilt and used (crude, amateur, just learning) thread painting to add more color and detail.  It still looked a little drab so, as a final touch, I filled and shaded with crayons.  I enjoyed the whole process and plan to make some more.

I like that a lot. I love barns. Did you draw that on there and then embroider the whole thing or is some of it a type of pen or marker?

Thanks for the update on that. I am going to try one and see how it turns out.
