When a photo is as complex as this month's "Interpret This" photo, I like to grid it so I stay somewhat
true to the photo when resketching it for the quilt.
I then make another grid larger on my sketch paper and start a loose drawing of the photo. You can see four piles of fabric that are numbered....each pile is for a different building. I auditioned them earlier.
Now I am ready to begin. Hopefully all will go smoothly. Having an extra month this time is a very good thing.
