Ohio Star: North Market


72″ x 48″

The North Market is a veritable institution in Columbus.  If you have friends or family visiting the city for the first time, you will probably take them here for a scoop of Jeni’s ice cream, some pierogies, a bowl of pho, a maple-bacon doughnut, or any of several other delicacies.

I wasn’t sure about using this image in a photoquilt, but my wife encouraged me to give it a shot and I’m glad that I did.  The image itself has more detail than I usually like to include, but this gives the photoquilt a rich and ornate feel, a bit like hand-woven rug.  This may also be due to the rich golds and reds or the stark patterns created by the beams that hold the market together.
