Journal Quilt

I've made a January Journal Qlt from a photo of one of the journal qlts I made in 2004.
I played with the original phot using Paint Shop Pro, Effects, texture effect, weave.
I did the playing some time ago and kept the picture because I thought it would be a good idea to play with and maybe make a quilt.
What I did instead was, make the image A4 size, using bits of the image to fill in around the edges, then when I was happy with what I had I printed it onto white fabric.
Next step was glueing it to batting and using a small zig zag stitch to emphisise the weave pattern. Some shading was done with a fabric pen to enhance the darker areas then a back was put on and a small border and binding to finish.
Top photo is the original.
