Here's the latest entry for the online challenge. The theme is "Reflection" and I spent several evenings watching the sun go down on the Mississippi River to capture the right moment for this quilt. I took lots of photos and printed some onto fabric. Then I pieced the background and did a bit of machine applique for the face. After quilting I applied adhesive with a popsicle stick and fused on gold foiling. Hand stitching reminds me of the starlings that fly over the water eating the dreaded mosquitoes. Hurray for starlings!
I am enjoying the challenge and really like the themes and am making every attempt to stretch myself as an artist. Only time will tell that I have succeeded. Click on the badge for other submissions to the challenge.
