#Selfie Quilt – QuiltCon Reject
Ever wish you had a quilt tag itself in your IG photo?? I know, “See a need, fill a need.” Right? ?hahah. ((#firstworldproblems)) This is my #selfie quilt. It looks backwards, but it isn’t. Go ahead and grab your phone. Turn around and take quick selfie with the quilt up on the screen. See how the letters flipped? Neat, no?
It was recently entered in QuiltCon West 2016. It has the honor of being one of the 1200 rejected quilts. I can now, totally show it off on my blog!!
The quilt is small-ish at about 25″ x 29″.
The letters on the quilt were typed, flipped, printed, traced on fabric & fusible adhesive backing, and raw-edge applied to the quilt.
All the piecing is loose and improvisational. Strips and tiny teal & grey slivers were added around the outside border.
The quilt is 1/2 teal and 1/2 grey when you look at the border fabric selection. The binding mirrors the border color selection.
The quilting was done on my home machine. Pebbles around the text, to showcase the letters. Graffiti style quilting in the lower pieced border. Feathers and stripes in the outer border. There’s lots going on in this small piece.
