Some Day I'll Fly Away
100cm x 149cm
This is one of my favourite quilts! It started life as one of my gouache and Indian ink paintings on a box canvas. The painting was photographed and the image digitally printed onto cotton poplin fabric by Jamie at the Fingerprint studio. I free motion quilted the wholecloth print and added the text added using foam alphabet stamps. The digital print is so faithful to the original – it shows every brushmark and even the texture of the canvas surface! If you take a look at the detail images below you’ll see how much the painting was enlarged to become the quilt.
