I was very pleased with the true color that they achieved. I had altered the photo in Photoshop Elements with a Posterize filter. I free-motion machine quilted it following the blocks of color and changing thread colors as I went.
Last month's word was Radiant and I chose this picture of a Hibiscus flower taken at my friend's home in Florida. The colors were amazing.
Again, I put the Posterize filter on it. The colors really were this intense.
My interpretation on a 4" x 6" piece. I enjoyed doing the hand embroidery on this little piece, even though it took a long time. I decided that I want to made this one larger, too, and Spoonflower is printing it 26" square, so that I don't have to chop off the top and bottom as I had to do here. I'm hoping that the colors will be as dynamic as they are in the photo.
I am behind on my month's words and have to make it up and do two this month, Rain and Reflection. I am using my own photos for all of them, but I may have to cheat a bit with rain. Don't think I took any rainy day pictures, but I will look.
I am linking up with Off the Wall Friday.
