Rick-rack belt and vintage metal button.
I had fun playing with her hair design- embroidered waves and a curl.
I’m quite sure she is a twenties girl but that might be because I was listening to a Phryne Fisher Mystery while I was working on her.
I will post one more tomorrow and then all the available ones will go into my Etsy shop.
Too, too many unfinished pieces in the studio. I need to get some pieces finished! I’ve got some girls and some guys in progress- still finishing the backlog of sewed inventory from last year. I can’t wait to get out the toile and starting cutting some new ones! Soon I hope.
She is a green-eyed, red-haired girl.
Vintage rick-rack and button. Skeleton tattoos.
I made a quilt for my daughter who is having a rather big birthday this month. And, I flew to Chicago to deliver it. Some things you just have to present in person. Here are some pics from the process, most off my phone so they aren’t all that great.
Starting out, mid-January-
The center of the quilt is a Japanese gift wrapping cloth. I made a similar quilt in 2010. Using the Japanese fabrics and piecing, quilting and then assembling. There were 5 main pieces- 2 sides, the center, top center panel, bottom center panel.
Then sewed the sections together until,
It was all together! I will confess that I am most certainly not an expert quilter and some of my machine quilting was wonky enough that I had to remove it and quilt some parts by hand. So, it’s a mixed hand/machine piece.
It’s fun to do something completely different, every once in a while!
