Creative Photo Expansion Quilts
By Brenda Groelz
Transferring photos to fabric has become a popular way to personalize quilts. To further emphasize and develop an image, I began exploring this technique for piecing around a photo. It is a step beyond traditional sashing or alternate block settings and expands the photo beyond its boundaries. By using fused applique, a small photo can be used as the centerpiece of a much larger quilt block or wall hanging. Details can be added that give more interest and life to the images; your imagination can combine with the moment captured in time. It's a fun, creative way to use your special photos.
