I told you this photo might turn up in a quilt! Well, sort of a quilt, anyway. I tried the technique I've seen in Quilting Arts magazine to give a holographic effect. I printed the bottle photo on printable silk organza (a sheer fabric) and pieced it with some of my hand dyed fabric. I then quilted this piece and stapled it to an artist's canvas. I had earlier cut a rectangular piece of the canvas away - the same size as the photo. Next, I printed the same photo on cotton fabric and glued it to poster board. I placed the canvas over the poster board, lining up the photos on top of each other. I then trimmed the poster board and stapled it to the back side of the canvas. So now the photos are about 3/4 inch apart, with the sheer one on top. The effect is pretty cool, especially in person. From every angle, this quilt looks different. I'll do this again, I'm sure.
I also worked on quilting Shifting Momentum, aka, The Football Quilt. I'm doing a good bit of straight line quilting, emulating yard lines, I guess you could say. This is not difficult, but is very time consuming. I'll be working on this for days.
