And I didn't think I would have a flaunt this week because I was just working away at my Feathers and Cicad quilt! It is amazing what can happen in a few hours! All started by.........
I received a beautiful parcel in the mail this morning. I opened it up and there was the most beautiful little quilt! It's title is "In search of Demeter". Dijanne Cevaal created it - I'll post a picture tomorrow - oops - I left it at work! I had to find out who Demeter is. Well now I know - she is Earth Mother! The Romans called her Ceres.
A friend of mine and I found a picture of a relief sculpture of her and my friend (Shirley), challenged me to do something with it!
Well I have. This is the first attempt - she is not pretty but I have learnt a lot from playing!
I started with some horrible pink fabric! I mean really pink! I toned it down with a strong tea wash! It was still pink but not as bad.
I have machine quilted all her outline and most of the detail and then painted the rest. Like I said - I've learnt a lot - what to do and what not to do!
I might make her again one day and try not to make the same mistakes.
She is 18cm x 20 cm
