Sloanie is Done!!!

I started "I Can Dress Myself"  last year in Susan Carlson's class at Asilomar in Pacific Grove, CA.   I took it to the Patt Blair Retreat I just went to this past March and finished the highlights in her hair, glued down some pieces and took the dog hair off that had collected on the bottom.  I brought it home and sandwiched it and then Gloria Mauno volunteered to quilt it for me.  She did an amazing job and I would have never done such a nice even squiggle.  She even changed the thread on top so it would not be obvious.  I couldn't wait to get it to Marilyn Hersey to do the binding.  I love it!  This one will be entered in the SD Quilt Show.

I Can Dress Myself

Face detail
There are about 1 million tiny pieces of fabric glued down first then a little paint but not much, topped with a very fine orange tulle, then quilted.  It was done from a photograph.

Oh my lands, Elaine. Sloanie's quilt is amazing.
That kind of detail boggles my mind. It's just beautiful!
Have a great rest of the week!
