I photographed this old barn and then created an eight part color separation photo silkscreen on fabric. I used free motion quilting to complete this piece. 2014 Measurements are 16.75" x 13.25".
So it is a photo that has been quilted? Or is it appliqué based on the photo? Very good!!!
To answer your question, this is an eight part photo silkscreen using fabric paint. So it is neither an applique nor a photograph. After using fabric paint and the silkscreen technique (which is a type of printmaking), I then quilted the piece using free motion quilting.
Oh wow, that makes this piece even more special! It is really beautiful!
