Ron Evans Apollo 17
Hartsville, South Carolina, USA
After a fellow artist had to bow out of making a quilt representing this astronaut, I said I would. While searching through my quilts for a presentation I came across an old embroidered self portrait quilt and decided that was the technique I would use to create Ron Evans Apollo 17.
Digitized photo image stitched onto hand dyed cotton fabric, enhanced with paints, colored pencil, markers and stenciling. Machine quilted and pieced.
Background is hand dyed cotton fabric, commercial cotton fabrics were used in the borders.
