Shadow Selfie #7 - Pump It

This is the 7th quilt in the Shadow Selfie series.  I wrote blogs about quilts 1-6 previously.

I got the idea for this quilt from a picture taken on a bike ride.  The background and the shadow are hand painted with fabric acrylic paints onto PFD (Prepared For Dying) fabric.  It was heat set after the paint dried.  I learned this technique from Susan Brubaker Knapp, an excellent teacher.

I picked green and shades of yellow green for the background because, if you've been reading my blogs, you know that lime green is my favorite color.  And I love to ride bicycles.  The shadow selfie series is becoming a bit of a visual journal about my activities.

So here it is:
