Lady Madonna

Lady Madonna

Fused & machine quilted, hand-beaded. Hand made faces from poly clay. She measures about 11X17, and cradles the child within her belly. My meditation for a healthy delivery of my baby girl, born in Feb 2005. I went into labor with her the day I took my last stitch on it!

I decided to use the green fabric as the main accent just because it's "holly" fabric.... but I did realize that it needed the red binding to set it off.

Mom's has 7 blocks, Hollys has 5. The pattern was so easy I felt free to alter it a little after making the first one.

Used red as the main accent on this one, so the green binding was used to set it off. Note the super-cute praire points!


Mass o' charms...

Mass o' charms...

I started off by painting some timtex, then applying some oil paints, then heat-foiling, and then adding a layer of chiffon scarf. Oh, and then free-motioned all over it. The question remains, "what ELSE can I do to them!!????"

Started off with some batik fabric, couched some yarns to it, and satin stitched the edges...and then of course added some bead-y goodness!

All fused, then quilted, with the heat-foiled and Paintstik'd fabrics...


Front of Magic Card Case #2

Front of Magic Card Case #2

This time I eliminated the middle section, so it only has 1 pocket... but that's OK, because it was not as stiff & difficult to get into.
