Photo Redwork

Did you see the post over on Becky's blog about photo needlework??
I thought I would share mine. --Of course, it is only my top because, you know I have trouble finishing quilts. :b
This is my Challenge Quilt from our quilt group last year. (We were given fabric scraps and had to creatively incorporate them in a quilt.) My photo is the house my grandfather grew up in- as it looked in the early 1900's.

I enlarged my photo on my computer and traced it on to my fabric, with my fabric and pattern taped on my patio door window. ( Windows work well if you don't have a light box! )
Then I stitched it up in red floss to match my blocks...
