Sometimes quilting leads us in a different direction that we ever imagined - you know what I mean? While coming up with a gift for my husband's cousin Anna, I wanted to create something unique.
The process: I did an internet search for Call of Duty MW3
Don't you just love the over all black and white TV feeling of the whole thing.
After printing the image out on my printer, I took it over to the local copy center and had the image blown up to the size I wanted. This is really easy and only cost 17 cents.
With a light box, I traced the figure of the man onto a fusible web, ironed it onto black fabric, then cut out the silhouette.
I found a grey static looking fabric, and used the back of the fabric as my background and the front of the fabric as the buildings.
Once all of the pieces were ironed in place, I sewed over the edges and added a little detail to the raw edge applique.
During the quilting process, I added the MW3 on his chest and more details to the smokey background.
