Fused to Timtex. Free motion quilted ALL over it to keep all those PESKY edges down.
Made the bodice out of black velvet and the bands from luscious red silk.
It hangs on a mini hanger I found at Salvation Army. It had an 80's rag doll hanging on it. Tossed the doll...the hanger was perfect. Thin satin ribbon attached to dress....and all set to go.
I had FUN making this piece!
My dress is surrounded by my Art Girlz group members. We are a small group that formed and meet once a month to indulge a more creative itch, ala Quilting Arts magazine.
The one in the left corner is Martha's. She took a Jane Sassaman class and her flowers have a definite Sassaman flavor. It is gorgeous!
The one to the upper right is Elaine's blow-up of a particular part of a flower. Really cool!
The little leaf piece on my head is Sharon's. She played with watercolor wax crayons and what great results. I love it! She wrote that she gave herself permission to play and this was what came of the play session!
I learned today:
- 1 million Earth's would fit inside the Sun. It's true. I doubted Chicken (aka Jason). I asked Jeeves. It is TRUE!
