or, computers from the perspective of a fiber artist!  Our theme was 'Architecture', but I knew from the outset that I wanted to do something other than a building.  When I stumbled on a definition of architecture that included information technology, I knew I had my inspiration.   My son suggested I google 'gaming computers' to find an inspiration photo, and I found several that I thought would lend themselves to interpretation in fabric.  Here's my inspiration. . . 

and here's my finished piece.

I embellished with actual computer parts I got from my brother, who had built computers.  I liked what the text fabric added- to me, that represented communication- and computers have become a huge part of communication just in my lifetime.  I quilted it all over with a straight line kind of stipple, which was a challenge to keep the scale somewhat consistent.  And, I did a skinny (1/8") binding, something I've wanted to try for awhile.  

It was a fun one to do- I think I will mount this one on painted canvas.  Who knows, maybe one of the techies in my family will end up with it.

Very nice, Bev. Are the grey dots painted/stamped on? I'll have to look at the other quilts in this challenge.
