I took some photos of a Sunflower and some Cosmos flowers when I was in Sisters, Oregon in July for the annual quilt show there. I used Picasa program and turned the photos into a black and white sketch. I then printed them onto fabric. You really need an inkjet printer to do this, but I still printed mine using my laser printer. I traced the basic lines of the flowers with a pigma pen because the laser printer is not permanent on fabric and the printed lines aren't very dark. Once I had the lines drawn in, I used Caran d'Ache Neocolor 2 Artist Crayons to color and then paint the flowers. The laser printer made the colors look dull, that's why an inkjet printer works better. After they dried I heat set with an iron and then quilted these small quilts.
