That is really cool. Can you explain more about the technique? Are the tiles fused on to the background?

What a striking piece of artwork! Like cat-on-a-mac, I'd love to know how exactly this was created. :-)

Thank you everyone.

My Process: I fused my fabric, cut using the die in the photo using my sizzix machine then ironed onto white fabric following the mosaic pattern I created. When all the fabric tiles were in place I put a piece of tulle over it and stitched in the "grout" lines (between each tile). The white image is the back of the quilt to show the stitching.

That is an amazing art piece. Even your description of how you did it just as amazing. How you placed all the colors on the crab is amazing! I don't know where you live, but that does deserve to be a wall hanging for a house on the Gulf Coast of the USA. We are dedicated crab eaters.

Nice! Makes perfect sense. Thanks for sharing

Thank you so much. I do live on the space coast of Florida. Most of my artwork is ocean themed and my walls are getting covered.
