Design Concept

This is fun little quilt I made for a segment on Simply Quilts about printing fabric on a printer/scanner combination.  I began by laying three different dandelion blossoms and a dandelion seed head directly on the glass of the scanner. They were covered with blue cloth, and the lid was left open so they didn't get squashed. I discovered that every dandelion has its own personality.  To scan the dandelions, I cut off the stems and laid them face down.  They were enlarged to 7½" square and scanned at 300dpi. 

Each image was printed out on white cotton broadcloth which had been soaked in Bubble Jet Set, which makes the ink permanant on the fabric. 

The lattice strips are direct scans of dandelion greens, and the corner blocks are additional scans of the blossom, gone to seed. 

The quilting is a simple all over meander pattern in fine yellow thread.
