Myself, a few years ago
This photo was taken many years ago by my first husband, who was an excellent photographer. He had a way of printing the pictures that made all the shadow areas go completely black--I was not actually posing in a dark room. Yes, that's me! This piece is being framed right now, it is quite small--the entire quilt is only about 16 inches by 20 inches. I did something new--I covered the pieced photos with a layer of hand dyed silk mesh fabric that I bought at the SFQG quilt show in Feb. just for this quilt. The silk has some variations of color (mostly red) that you can see in this picture--the photos underneath are more evenly black.
