the Bob Marley quilt was used by using the "PHOTO-INSPIRED ART QUILTS: From Composition to finished Piece", book. i took a class from Bisa Butler at a retreat several months ago on this same technique but using different types of fabric to give it a different look. i just needed the book to give me a little more understanding of what i was doing. the other technique i use is by Maria Elkins, she has a DVD that she is selling to teach her technique. you can find her on the Internet.
the Bob Marley is a picture from a t-shirt. my old t-shirt has bob marley with a black background. but i saw this one in a store and took a picture of it with my phone and enlarge the picture.
someone asked what type of fusible web i was using and i am still trying to find the right one for me. i like to use ulltra heat n bond because it give me a sharp smooth cut. but what i don't like about it is, that it makes the quilt very stiff from the fabric layers that i use. steam n seam give me the feel i want but not the sharpness. so i am still playing with that. so i hope that i answered every ones questions. i am a work, still sick and can't wait until lunch timesoi can take a nap. friday i am taking the day off and going to my cousin's beach house and i hope i can get some rest there.
