After spending so much time in our barn lot during hay season this year,
and making so many images with my camera,
I decided to print out my favorite photos and begin a new quilt series:
The images printed beautifully on 8.5 x 11 inch fabric.
I use an Epson printer with Durabrite Inks
and Jacquard® Inkjet Fabric Sheets 8.5"x 11"
100 images…..probably a series of 5 or 6 quilts.
These images are mostly TRUCK related:
The overlapping of the images appeals to me…
I pulled out a few yards of rust dyed fabrics as a possible background for the quilt…
The rust fabric on the left is the back of the fabric…..lighter, more texture.
The rust fabric on the right is the front of the fabric…..smoother appearance.
You can see the left side of the rusted fabric really jumps out at you with texture.
I decided to use the back side of the rusted fabric for texture
I put 2 yards of rusted fabric up on the design wall:
and arranged the barn lot images on top of it…
The rusted fabric works well with the dusty, rusty, time-worn appearance of these images.
You can see the paint peeling on the truck in this image.
This is a possible lay out for this quilt…
I decided to remove the rusted fabric from the wall,
put the fabric photos on the wall
then fill in around them with the rusted fabric:
I am not grooving on this setting at all. It appears too structured.
I am taking this down and going back to the overlapping images in photo 2 above.
In the mean time…..enjoy my flower images:
Okay…..I am back
Back to square one with the images...
I prefer this lay out…more square in size,
not as long as it was earlier.
I inserted a different piece of rust dyed fabric in the middle
to make the background large enough for all of these images:
Ahhh….this feel good.
