Picture Quilt for Daughter's School
completed June 2, 2004
My daughter attends one of the best Montessori schools in the country, and has been a student there since she was barely two years old. She is now finishing up her next-to-last year at the school, and I wanted to commemorate the year with a quilt.
The layout of pictures was done with a software program called Mazaika. The target image is the logo of the school:
The program then takes the photograph "library" and arranges them by color value to create the photomosaic.
The photographs are the "school photos" as taken for the yearbook, supplemented with photos of the campus.
Here is a close-up of the corner.
The setting was suggested by the wonderful folks at Capital Quilts.
Here is the label:
The photos and the label were printed directly onto ColorPlus Fabrics Cotton Poplin. Printing out all the pictures took a whole color ink cartridge and a whole black ink cartridge on my Epson 2500.
