I completed a portrait quilt of Pres-elect Obama today. My husband, Kurt, “commissioned” it.

The applique is based on the cut-out filter in photoshop. The background was created in photoshop and tranfered onto fabric. The border is set in a version of a log cabin. The quilt is just under 24″ x 19″.

I would like it to be better. I would like it to be perfect. But it is not. I am not. It is a good piece, though, and I am pleased with the overall look of the quilt.
