Image Transfer Sample.

Although I have shown this on my other blog I need to have it here as it is part of my machine embroidery C&G collection. The image is of course my son's photo, taken of the motorway near Barnsley.
I printed the image onto lightweight vilene in black and white.
We were told to incorporate pintucks into the piece using the twin needle on our machines. I did thid using a red and orange thread to represent the lights from the cars.
I then used a silver metallic thread to machine quilt other areas such as the motorway sign and bridge.
I then added black borders and bindings.

This was a very difficult piece to photograph but hopefully you get the idea,
