Doing quilts using digital images on fabric has been a direction I've been moving toward, so making pieces to enter has been a good kick in the butt to get going. The images that I'm most interested in working with are non-representational, photos of interesting patterns, or photos that together create interesting overall patterns.
I've got two more ready to quilt in this emerging series, that I also intend to enter. And more ideas in the queue.Yes, that is a turquoise donut in the center, with a freshwater pearl inside. The backing/binding fabric is a recent shibori. I cut much of that out of the first photo above because I want to retake the photo with the quilt on black fabric, instead of the ivory currently on the design wall. And the design itself? A photo of a deconstructed screen before I printed with it!
Anyhow, back to the studio today, for more shibori and more quilting!
