Technically this is not a quilt since it is not batted and stitched through the layers. But it is pieced so I'm calling it quilting for the purposes of classifying this blog entry .
This started with the train fabric I showed the other day. I bought it to feature as the central panel on an art piece. It was suggested that the border could be train tracks but I could not find any suitable fabric. I decided to piece tracks.
I used a fabric with a 'ground' print and one with 'wood' print to create railroad ties on a rail bed. Then I stitched it onto the black panel with mitered corners. I then used black bias tape and a roll of 1/2 inch Steam-a-Seam2 to create 'rails'.
It is installed in a black shadow-box frame.
