This quilt was made after a visit to the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
I took a photo of a 13th century stained glass window… it was small, about 15" square and I wondered if I could re-create it as a quilt.
I enlarged my photo…
Made a drawing of the original by putting the photo on the light box and tracing it.
The drawing was placed on the light box and then the imaged traced onto fabric…
I colored it with a black pigma pen and colored tsukineko pigment ink pens.
I cut out each individual piece and placed it on black fabric.
Voila, a stained glass window.
I quilted it with YLI smoke mono filament thread. (Actually it was appliqued and quilted at the same time)
I stitched the pieces down with a small invisible stitch….
A small zig zag. 1.4 stitch width, 1.4 stitch length. size 60/8 "sharp" needle and 50 weight black masterpiece thread in the bobbin.
Cotton batting, (warm and natural)
