Hi, I am a wife, mother of two and grandmother of two. I love quilting and have been doing so for 15+ years. I began learning to quilt in the traditional calico and plaid fabrics. I quickly became interested in brighter colors and more artsy quilts. Although, I have made many type of quilts from doll house size to extra large king sizes, wall portrait quilts have been my passion. Faces are fascinating and I see different colors in each one.
I create portrait quilts from a photograph. With the help of a computer to posterize an image and fused fabric, I transform them into wall portrait quilts that looks similar to a painting.
Recently, I have been interested in textile and mixed media art. I hope to create more quilts using all types of media. including paper, safety pins, sticks, stones, foiling, manipulating fabric or anything that I can attach to fabric.
I am happy to join this group and get to know each of you. To know a bit more about me, please visit my new website, as I download more photos at www.dianabracy.com
Thanks for accepting my friendship.
