Granddad's Tote Bag Rides, 2017, 40" x 60"

I made the above quilt to commemorate my Dad's 85th birthday in August 2017.  It's a portrait showing him playing with two of his eight grandchildren -- two-year old Stevie, in the tote bag, and four-year old Jimmy, enthusiastically waiting for his turn.  I made this from a photo I took circa 1991.

To illustrate how I created this quilt from the original photo, I made a short slideshow overviewing my process.  To view it, you can click on the title page of the slideshow below and then just keep clicking on it to change the pages or use your "<" and ">" buttons.
