This next piece started with a holiday card of the subject, Luke, the grandson of a friend. I placed the image into photo shop elements, creating a gray scale and four color way prints from the original.
The four color way used complementary colors of blue (2 shades, dark and light), red/orange and yellow. I then found four pieces of fabric from my stash that closely matched the chosen palette.

The Quilt of Luke is small, about 8 by 10 inches. It is a sketch from which I will make a larger quilt. I like the composition and will experiment with a different color palette. The next step: explore how to quilt the image.
