Vintage Ephemera For You — and My Fiber Beatles Quilt Unveiled!

In honor of the upcoming 4th of July holiday, I am gifting you with these free downloads of patriotic imagery. (Click on the link below each thumbnail to bring up its full-size version, then right-click —or click and hold on a Mac — and save the high resolution JPG to your computer.) These stereoscope images come from my collection of vintage ephemera. The stereoscope device enabled viewing separate left-eye and right-eye views of the same scene as a single three-dimensional image.

With a Little Help From My Friends, art quilt by Judy Gula

I was honestly surprised when I saw the list of songs that remained, as “With a Little Help From My Friends,” was still on the list. I would have thought that hit would have been snapped up early. I thought it was theperfect song for me, because I have wonderful friends who help and support me in so many ways!

The vintage photo I used is of an all-female band: girlfriends, I am sure! With its music theme, vintage setting and female friends, I thought it was the perfect inspiration image for this challenge.

I collaged vintage fabrics, costume jewelry and more to create this 24" x 24" art quilt.

The cover quilt seen here, “Yellow Submarine,” was made by Cheryl Stanczyk.

    My old eyes can still pull these images into 3D without the use of a stereoscope. Thank you for posting. And I like your Beatles quilt. Anxious to see it again in Houston.
