I started working on the draft for the pattern, when I received another email from her. She wanted to know if I could also add the name on the bottle, which was Fowler Family Wines. I told Tracey that I wasn't very good at calligraphy, but, I would see what I could do. She didn't care if it was block letters or whatever. She really wanted the name somewhere on the barn quilt.
Laying out the pattern and painting the background commenced. Here's the first photo of the process. It shows the wine bottle and two glasses.
Judgement day finally arrived. I had to start working on applying the name to the label. I turned to my MSWord program and found an appropriate font to use, then size it up to fit the space within the label. Once I decided on the proper font and size, I traced the lettering onto the label. Using the newest Sharpie pens, called 'brush tips', I filled in the lettering and this is the result. I was quite impressed!!!!!
I also adding more grapes to the bottom. The entire barn quilt looks fantastic.............if I do say so myself!!!!
As expected, Tracey was very pleased and can't wait to receive it. I will post a photo of the barn quilt hanging at it's new home as soon as I receive it.
