While there, I got talked into making a SAQA auction quilt. Every year they auction off 12" x 12" art quilts to raise money for the organization. I started with a piece of fabric left over from our sun printing project. I shouldn't really say left over (thus implying I've completed all other associated projects), since I haven't yet done anything with the other sun printed blocks, but anyway....
This piece of fabric was actually red; my mom heard somewhere you could sunprint with setacolor (I think) so she painted it red and tried it out. It didn't print very well, so I just mashed the piece of fabric around in our leftover sunprinting solution and layered a bunch of different negatives on top just to see what happened.
I'm sorry I didn't take a picture of the fabric before assembly, but it looked kind of cool with four layered jellyfish prints and an anemone print on a splotchy background. I squared it up and pieced it into a spinning log cabin (anyone know the official name of that block?). It's machine quilted and partially layered with three different kinds of tulle to give the impression of being underwater.
I love the jellyfish. They're by far my favorite part. I used several different colors and weights of thread and I think they turned out nicely.
Overall, not one of my favorite pieces but I hope it can raise a little bit of money for SAQA!
