    Astoria Column quilt

    I made this quilt using the Quilted Photography software. I scanned a photo into the computer/program which then makes a grid to work with. This quilt has over 9000 pieces in it. I used half inch squares, ironed them onto a fusible gridded background, covered it tulle then machine quilted. Hope you enjoy it!!
    The Astoria Column is in Astoria Oregon where I grew up. I have climbed it many many times!!!

    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    Thanks for the compliments!! I love Astoria and climbing the column, it is just amazing!!! As a grade schooler, we would walk there by ourselves to play, it was just a short walk through the woods from our house, what fun we had!!!

    This quilt is even more spectacular when you see it in person.

    Amazing! How did you quilt it? Did you use a LA or a domestic machine? How close is your quilting? I am in awe of your beautiful quilt!!!

    What a wonderful way to keep a part of your childhood with you always, and generations to come will appreciate being able to share a part of your past visually.
