Tattoo Quilt

 This is an unusual quilt.  Back in September, I was working a quilt show, and was approached by Susan and her husband about the possibility of quilting a quilt for them that would be a Christmas gift.  First off, kudos to them for planning ahead!  The quilt will be going to live in a tattoo parlor, Hawthorne Ink, in Portland.  The skull designs are copied from tattoos the owner has, the center is a t-shirt, and I don't know where she found the 4 side photos.  The flame fabric used for piecing is perfect for the quilt, and we quilted it with a flame design with multicolored thread. 
While I personally don't have any tattoos, I'd kind of like to go and visit the shop just to see the quilt in it's new home.  Way cool Susan!
