Bay Bridge Printed on Fabric
Bay Bridge Printed on Fabric

The Oakland-San Francisco Bay Bridge, a main artery between the East Bay and the City, closed on Wednesday August 28 at 8pm forever.

Well, sort of forever.

They replaced it and they had to reconfigure the onramps or interchanges or navigation whatevers.

I started ATCs months ago. I just wasn’t excited about it, but I wouldn’t face it.

Somehow, thinking about the Bay Bridge closure made me get excited about ATCs again. I found a historic photo of the Bay Bridge, adjusted the size and printed them on fabric.

I added some stitching, including testing out the Aurifil monofilament.


While you read this, I will be at a CQFA meeting. I haven’t been able to attend a meeting in a while.

  1. It’s all construction around my community (a 10year process) so I certainly understand the upheaval of re-routing, etc.

    Love that you have immortalized the bridge. I’be traveled it many times. Beautiful!,

    1. I took some photos the new bridge alongside the old bridge as I crossed the new bridge for the first time today. Perhaps there will be some more ATCs and it will be a new bridge/old bridge series.
