Photographs are among the best ways to remember people, places and things. The photograph has a limitation and that is that the image is flat. Quilted photos is a way to give the image the sense of depth through quilting. The quilted image gives the picture texture and a sense of dimension so the finished product is a image or photo with a texture or a feeling of depth as well as a unique piece of fiber art.
Geo2 – Art Quilt
The QR quilt
One of the first of my Geo series is called the QR quilt a working quilt because the quilt actually does something, if you have a smart phone with a QR (Quick Response) Reader app and you take a look at the quilt with that app, it will send you to my Art Quilts of Nevada website.
The Flower Garden
This quilt is made up from the photos of flowers that I have taken over the years. The images of the water lilies, Lotuses and the walkway in the center block of the were taken at the Grounds For Sculpture in Hamilton Township, NJ.
The Geo Spiral
The image was created and colored on a computer, I had the image printed to fabric and then quilted.
