Starting a new quilt...

When I was at Ft. Mason, I took this photo of an old pier. Today I decided to try printing it on some Japanese crape ("chirimen") that I received for an invitational quilt show that will tour in Japan next year. By flipping the picture, the lines of the wooden piers line up and create an image that looks like "shibori" fabric (another Japanese textile technique). The pieces are pinned on my design wall now, when they are sewed together I'll post another picture.
