Brittle Bone Music

 Updated 3/2017-- photos (except my own) and all links (except to my own posts) removed as many no longer active. and it was easier than checking each one.

This small quilt was inspired by this post at Medgadget: Molecular Cracks Point to Source of Brittle Bone Disease. Actually, not the post but this image (credit).

I took the image and using June’s Colorfast Inkjet Fabric Paper made the following. It reminds me of a sheet of music, so I “framed” it as such.
The quilt is 12 in X 14.5 in. It is machine pieced and quilted.
Here is a photo of the back and the label.

Wow..thats an amazing inspiration! How did you get the design transferred to the quilt?

Purplesque, that's what the injet fabric paper is for. The design was literally printed onto the fabric using a color copier.

Beautiful! Coupled with the story of its inspiration, that's a heck of a "provenance." {yes, i have been boning up on my antique roadshow!}
