Playing Around at Quilt Retreat
I made this small wall hanging with a lime green background and a red dress and chose to make another one while I was at quilt retreat. I intend to donate it to a art quilt auction next spring. It is raw edged fused applique and machine quilted. I have embellished it with traditional colored rhinestones, fabric paints, glitter/glue on eyelids and lips, and OPI gold glitter nail polish in the hair. I'm still contemplating something red in the hair-any thoughts on that one??
