Rainbow Scrap Challenge....June is Yellow. Yellow letters wouldn't show up. And this just looks weird. Yellow is my favorite color. Unfortunately, yellow can be a hard color to come by. This is what I started earlier in the week.
I dyed the yellow fabric and then painted over it with brighter yellows to make it splotchy. Then I grabbed my flower book and fabric sharpie and wrote Latin names for flowers all over the back. I thought it needed a little color and dropped blue in areas. Pieced the ground with bright greens and hand appliqued the stems, leaves and flowers. With all the machine work I've been doing, I have missed the hand work. I'm thinking about doing hand quilting as well.
Some of you may have heard me complain about the lack of Fabric stores in Mobile....we have none. The 2 "craft" stores don't count. So when we have the quilt shows we look forward to the vendors. This is what I came home with...
These lovely hand dyes made me drool. She had lots of beautiful colors and designs. The top piece is dyed and rusted. Very COOL! These will be used in the quilt made from the drawing below. No my little one did not draw it! :)
Big Question: We had the Hoffman Challenge "Dolls" traveling show. I have to make an art doll. Can any one recommend a good book for a beginner? I checked one out from the public library, but would like a recommendation.
