Design Concept

This quilt grew out of a series of photographs taken in June of 2000 in Christine Porters's beautiful garden in Bristol, England. The photos were taken with a macro lens to get really close-up details. They were scanned on a flat bed scanner, and imported into Corel Draw, where they were collaged together to make the final design. The rectangle with the large iris blossom is floating over a background made from a greatly enlarged photo of the inside of the iris. Clematis blossoms and vines form a border around the outside of the quilt. The inner green border is made from a photo of moss growing in a stream in Cheddar, England.

The quilt design was printed with archival ink in 12" wide strips on an Epson 2000p printer. Click here or on picture to see really close (98k) detail showing stitching.
