My initials are K=KIWI, D=DARK RED, E=EBONY & ECRU.
I used a Jane Sassaman pattern I purchased when I took her class last year. It is a really cool heart silhouette. I had to trace pattern to parchment paper, iron to wool felt & use an X-Acto knife to carefully cut it all out. I fused it all together and spent hours appliqueing the curvy edges on the machine.
The Kiwi is from a vintage 70's prom dress. The center envelope is a copy to fabric from a letter my dad sent my mother in 1957 from Fort Dix in the early days of their courtship. He had emigrated here that year from Ireland. I call it "LOVE LETTER".
Working within the parameters of a challenge is always interesting. I will be posting all the challenge entries on our guild's blog Museum Quilt Guild soon so make sure you click on it in my Favorite Blogs to the left.
This(above) is what I was able to complete today with a bag of stuff that seemed to have been packed just for me! Mary Ellen included some funky fabrics! I like where it is going.
Two women actually did finish today!
