Returning to our apartment one afternoon, we found this gentleman performing to a crowd on one of the nearby corners. He was standing on one foot, juggling three clubs while simultaneously balancing a large carafe with water and a goldfish on his head. I snapped the photo on which the quilt is based and put some euros in his hat.

I finished this piece just recently. Starting with a plain piece of PFD fabric and an outlined version of my photo, I inked the image using using Tsukineko inks and markers. Both the inner and outer borders are commercial batiks. I quilted this one on a domestic machine.
