It's supposed to be a representation of this photo of a black hole at the core of NGC 4261:
|From The Hubble Site|
|Black hole-eating amoeba.|
|Is this its better side? Nope.|
It wasn't until Thursday that I came across this Crab Nebula quilt by Jimmy McBride in the latest Quilter's Newsletter that I decided to try something spacey. I found the photo on The Hubble Site. I picked a very simple one, but wow, there are some stunning photos on that site.
|This way then? Nada.|
I then used the photo quilt technique by Maria Elkins that I've been wanting to try for a few years now. Once the layers were fused on, I did tight quilting using mostly Aurifil (#5009, 5002, 1104, 2230, and 2240). At least I still love the thread!
|Perhaps in better light? Niet.|
Like my other challenge pieces, this one measures 14.5" square, finished with a zig zag stitch.
October's colour is grey. More to come this week on this smoking colour! Maybe next month, I'll do a black hole eating an amoeba...
Have a great Sunday!
