back to the Ethiopian

Before I went to Festival of Quilts, I got the piece about Abebe Bikila to the layout stage. As you may know Abebe Bikila was the first African to win an Olympic gold. He ran the marathon barefoot, due to lack of proper footwear, and still won.
Here is a part of the layout. The Ethiopian flag is the one used at the time of the Olympics in 1960.
The biggest problem was that the printed panels were printed awkwardly, so distance from edges fluctuated widely!

I need to process a few more photos to show some of the steps for putting the piece together. Hopefully tomorrow.
