Collages............

I was playing with Picasa 3 yesterday and made collages of my 16 patch quilts.  I'm not including the orange one I made last year because the top isn't done yet.  It needs to be wider.  This is the garden series: Peony Garden, Zinnia Garden, and Blueberry Patch.
I chose photos of blocks, stacks to sew, sewing taking place, and finished quilt top.
There are several choices for layouts for the collages.
I did some sewing on the pastel 16 patch strip sets but you will have to wait until tomorrow to see them.

Collages are so much fun and they share so much more about the process than a single snapshot can. Your sixteen patch works are marvelous!

What a beautiful assortment of quilt tops.

Great visual comparison. Clicking back through your posts, I can see the series develop. In the collage format you condensed the entire process. I can't pick just one....they are all beautiful.

The collage format is very informative of your process. And the smaller scale photos reinforce what we all know: looking at quilts in small scale highlights value placement. Thanks.

Beautiful! I love the colors and seeing all of the finished quilts together gives a whole different perspective than just seeing them individually.

It is almost as much fun playing with the photos of the quilts as it is making them. And I LOVE seeing your handiwork in all its splendor.

Another great post today Wanda, really like the photo layout you presented.

Each quilt top has it's own grand look, and to chose a favorite is impossible, they are all beautiful !

Wonderful post which really shows off these beauties! Such a great idea to do the collages... I'm going to try and keep this in mind for my new large quilt projects.

These collages are amazing - must have a look to see if there is anything I can do in Photoshop Elements.
Love the names you have given the quilts.

Elaine said...

I knew it would be amazing and it was. Can't believe you made those thousands of squares in the last couple of months. beautiful!
