12 by 12 number two


HereImage2 is a picture of the prompt for QAK ‘s (quilt artists of  Kentucky) second 12 by 12  challenge quilt.  The photo  made me think of Esher’s art work and a fear of heights.  It  took me awhile to figure out how to draw a Penrose stair.

Next I cut it out of peltex  and then fused fabric over it.  The next step was to satin stitch the fabric edges.
