Macro Quilt

I belong to a SAQA (Studio Art Quilt Assoc.) group that meets once a month. Our latest challenge was to take a Macro Photo of anything that inspires you and make a quilt using the image in any form that you would like. I chose a photo that I took in Florida of a hibiscus. I then sent it into my Adobe Photoshop and posterized it. Which brings out all the subtle shades and printed it on fabric. Next I fused it onto Timtex after which I machine stitched in the different colors with DMC cotton thread. After the stitching, I added beads to the stamen After which I added it to the top of a quilted background.
