Robert Kaufman Solids Challenge - Barb

Continuing on with sharing our Robert Kaufman Solids Challenge.   Up next is... Spring by Barbara Triscari
Barb did an interesting twist with the solids in that she made them into prints by creating her own printed fabric.   She printed my original photos of flowers and birds on Kona charm squares and used only the charm squares in the quilt top.  When she saw the photos on the colored charm squares all lined up after printing, it reminded her of Andy Warhol prints. 
She then arranged the photos by colored background to make four color blocks.  She says "I enjoyed experimenting with printing on the colored fabrics and was a wonderful way to explore ways to incorporate my photos in my quilts." 
Barb free motion quilted these.  with some pretty springlike designs.
