Art Quilts Around the World Challenge - Science

Woo hoo!!  My 'science' challenge for the online blog, Art Quilts Around the World, is finished.  I call it A Quilter's DNA!

I'm sure most quilters can identify with having some blood on a quilt or two, hence the red on the fingerprint.  

I'm sure some of you may have seen on those CSI shows a picture of DNA sequencing...if not, this is a picture that may look familiar or close to it!  HA  Actually, this was my inspiration for creating a background of 5/8" hex's (paper pieced by hand)! 

I started on this awhile back but with my hands/wrists being an issue (that's a blog post on it's own!  HA) I have been slow to stitch these little buggers!  But I do so love hand stitching!   

And a closeup of the fingerprint (machine quilted) and some hex's! 

I didn't do much machine quilting, other than the fingerprint, as I felt it would take away from the theme.  

This was a fun challenge and sorry I didn't meet the date on the 30th!  But it's done and now on to the next challenge, 'Believe'...hmmmmmm

Do check out some of the other challenge pieces on the web site: Art Quilts Around the World.
