this was done for my glass casting class.  the assignment was the idea of "storytelling," and i've always loved the idea of telling your family history through quilts; however, my family has never quilted--we've crocheted. so i made some castings of small crochet pieces and incorporated them into a blanket that was all hung on the wall.

some in progress shots:

the details are hard to see but the side facing you is flat and the underside of the casting is an exact duplicate of crocheted yarn.

details of the individual castings on the piece:

the glass is actually clear and the white crochet is just around the edges--the color showing through is from the blanket they're hanging on.
