Title: Bright Idea

Theme: Science / Technology

Materials: Front and back of the quilt is all cotton fabric with a polyester batting in between. The base of the bulb is also cotton fabric, while the bulb it self is made out of a fusible nylon filament fiber. Inside the bulb the filament is drawn on white paper. Transparent thread was used to stitch around the bulbs to the fabric.

Did you enjoy this project? I did enjoy working with the new material for the light bulbs.

About: The light bulbs are serving as a “thank you” to Mr. Edison. No matter what color or style of the bulbs, they are still lighting our way out of the dark.
