From Art to Quilt

The first example is a photo of the original art created for the image transfer.  The piece entitle "Moon Over Bourbon Street" was created with water color inks, permanent pens and color pencils.  The second image has been transferred onto fabric.  Stitching (quilting) was added last to create texture, color, and definition to the piece.

Moon Over Bourbon Street

Moon Over Bourbon Street is a sketch exploring the technique of photo transfer.  The photo once transferred to fabric was made into a quilt sandwich (top fabric, batting, and back fabric). The was then was stitched to add texture and color. Use of metallic thread in selected areas gave the picture some dazzle.
