Card Trick - Photo Quilt

Newer Older

Because of flickr and my photos I haven't any time to make fabric quilts .... therefore I created a photo quilt.

I used small sections out of my flickr stream ... landscape, nature, flower, city, macro, tree and so on, The steps were the same like sewing a quilt.

Step-by-step how I did it:
After thinking about the pattern and drawing it on paper I cropped 18 squares from my photos and sorted them by colours. In each case I cut them in two triangles and rotated the 36 pieces in the direction as I needed them.

Then I put together four triangles in a specific colour order to form a new square. So I got 9 squares (see one example in my comment) which I finally put together to the Card Trick.

It may sound easy and fast ... I've spent the whole evening on it ;-)) but it was fun!

Feel free to make a note in your favorite triangle :)

Wegen meinen Fotos und vor lauter flickern fehlt mir die Zeit, um noch Quilts zu nähen. Deshalb habe ich gestern Abend einen Quilt aus Fotos von meinem Flickr Stream erstellt. Die Bilder bestanden aus Landschaft, Natur, Stadt, Blume, Makro, Baum usw. Die Vorgehensweise war genauso als ob ich einen Quilt nähe.

Schritt für Schritt:
Nachdem ich mir überlegt habe, was ich machen will und ein Muster auf Papier gezeichnet habe, schnitt ich 18 quadratische kleine Ausschnitte aus meinen Fotos aus und sortierte sie nach Farben. Ich teilte diese Quadrate jeweils in zwei Dreiecke und drehte diese 36 Dreiecke in den Winkel so wie ich sie für den Quilt brauchte.

Als nächstes habe ich jeweils 4 Dreiecke in einer bestimmten Reihenfolge zu einem neuen Quadrat zusammengefügt. So erhielt ich 9 neue Quadrate, die ich wiederum in einer bestimmten Reihenfolge zusammenbrachte. Fertig war der Foto Quilt.

Es hört sich vielleicht leicht und schnell an .... ich habe den ganzen Abend daran gesessen ;-)), aber es hat mir viel Spass gemacht!
