Skee-ball!

” H x ” W

Techniques:

My original photograph. Fabric printing done by Contrado. Stitched on Handi-Quilter Sweet 16 mid-arm machine.

Materials:

My original photograph, printed on cotton sateen by Contrado. Wool batting. Cotton backing. Variety of threads. Mounted on stretcher bars with lattice strip framing.

Knots & Tangles

This was pretty quick and easy to do! I thought the artistry was in the photo so I wasn’t inclined to do anything more than outline stitching, except for adding some fluorescent threads to enhance the neon.

Inspiration

Skee-ball is alot of fun! I’m not usually a fan of the trend in printing a photo and just stitching on top of it, but I couldn’t resist this one.
