Updated 3/2017-- photo and all links (except to my own posts) removed as many are no longer active and it was easier than checking each one.
This small art quilt was inspired by Movin Meat’s post: Fearful Symmetry. I took the EKG (photo credit), printed it out, enlarged a small segment and used it for the quilt.
The quilt was made as part of the ALQS5. It is meant to be an art quilt. The spikes of the EKG made me think of stalactites and stalagmites, of winter and cold. I had a fat quarter of a gray blue fabric with trees which I used for the background. I used a blue batik for the foreground.
It is machine appliqued and quilted using a multicolor metallic thread. It is 8.5 in X 10.5 in.Here is a view of the back before I sewed on the label and sleeve.
