The Quilter: Quilting with Malke

Posts Tagged ‘xray

A few people contacted me and asked how I got the photo on the fabric for the Exposed Breast Cancer Quilt.  Since I do a lot of photo transfers, I use special fabric bubble jet ink and treat the fabric myself.  The actual xrays is fabric that I carried at the time.  I now have another similar one but not the exact same.  As an aside, I now also sell prepared photo transfer fabric from June Tailor by the piece at $3 each.

Exposed” came about when I was going through my gazzilionth procedure (when I had breast cancer), this one was an X-ray and I noticed 2 containers, one marked exposed and another marked  unexposed, for the films.  As I lay there, I was thinking that going through any kind of medical treatments makes you feel just that- exposed.  I asked the technician if I could have the film and thats what how i made the lettering.

This is the first in my “Breast Cancer Series”
