The Blue Chair

This week's photo challenge theme is "chair."

I first put Ashton's plastic adirondack chair in the shrub bed in front of the house and took a picture of it.

Then I printed the picture in sepia onto fabric that was ironed to freezer paper. The blue chair was cut out and fused to the sepia printed fabric.
I also sent the backing fabric through the printer, layered the three layers and then quilted and bound it.

Emily is here again and we are working on a charity quilt for SLM Ministeries.


The inspiration for this quilt came from Lotta Charm by Film in the Fridge.

That's a great technique for the sepia printing and adding a pop of blue.

Love that blue chair piece. Looks cool even on the back! :) And looks like you ladies used a quilt-as-you-go approach on the charity quilt? Which is super cool, by the way!
