Workshop Series- Puzzle Mini Photo Collage Quilt

My new Digital Fiber work references the traditional quilt technique of working in squares or segments. I use photographs instead of geometric designs. These are cut and re-sewn together for a somewhat foldable and packable project. 
Work with  black and white images. Color with art materials that can travel in today's world.
Creates a small unique segmented foldable quilt.
New finishing techniques!
