Digital Image Journal Quilt

This is one of my digital images printed on my preferred fabric (see earlier post) and quilted.  The arms and fingers are heavily stitched because the fabric wasn't taut enough without it and this aided in shrinking the area a bit so it feels firm -- not 'mushy'.

Its interesting to see a digital creation in fabric form.  The medium has an effect on the piece.  I'm still figuring out what I think about that, but I observe that it is different.

Looking at the piece, I'm thinking I could have quite a show, if I did a quilt version of each one of the digital images I've done over the last year!

  1. you could easily have a show. I want to see more of them. I love the female figure in art. Good stitching, it's hard to know what to stitch on flesh, don't want wrinkled look but need something. LeeAnna Paylor

  2. I like this and agree that a series could make a show! Did you do any thread work on the face? I can't see it in the photo. It has a bold, clean look. I doodle on my IPad frequently.
