First Art Self-portrait Art Quilt
Right after I picked up my first issue of Quilting Arts, I knew I had found my place and my people in the art world. The very first art quit I made was this one. I took a self-portrait that I had designed on the computer and printed it on the gooey, cheap t-shirt transfer sheets. It was a little stiff and gummy, but the colors reproduction was excellent. I hand quilted the entire thing and embellished with beads. It was used, along with some other pieces, to illustrate my piece entitled "Painting out the Panic" that appeared in the April/May 2007 issue of Cloth, Paper, Scissors Magazine.
