My entry into the Tactile Architecture section at Houston International Quilt Show has been accepted. I was thrilled to get the email on Thursday. The images were photos I took from South Bank in Brisbane, I distorted the view then photo shopped the images to give an ink outline. I had Fiona Jackson from Fiona Jackson Designs print the finished images on her amazing printer. I wanted to keep the monochromatic style with the background so I mono printed and stenciled the grey, black and silver paint. I quilted the images and the background is small squares and rectangles. I used pink square and rectangle sequins to enhance the windows and the water in the foreground. I love the way the mirror windows in some of the buildings reflect and I used this as my inspiration to make this quilt.
