    My head just thinks about trying to make a quilt like that, but I would LOVE to see your final product. Go for it!

I know some are gonna think this is just absolutely absurd to even think about trying to recreate this but I love love love this pic and am gonna give it a shot. What do all of you think. Big ambition or just plain insane.

    The plan is to do it all in applique using some fabric markers to add the dimension to it where the fabrics will be lacking. So any ideas or suggestions. BTW, the wings will be left out of the quilt.

    Some days you gotta be a bit insane to get stuff done. This ole gal would NEVER attempt what you're talking about-------------but I will root for you all the way if you want to give it a shot.

    Jan in Va- The fact that it is so different is what drew me to it. I am a true believer in different can also be beautiful. Yes, I plan to do most of it in applique since I seem to be better at that than pp.
    Lisa- Thanks for the idea. I was planning on just using the fabric markers to add the details of the beads on gold fabric but I may just add some real beads instead.

    Please use real beads. She deserves real jewels (well JoAnn's jewels anyway!)

    If you've not already, go to a couple major quilt show and look closely at some of the fantastic "art" quilts. (hope that's the right term) You might find some techniques to help yourself.

    I looked at the picture again. I can see some golden braid. I can envision some slinky ribbons becoming snakes. And the amber beads around her head. Can't wait to see your creation.

    I assume you know about this, but I thought I'd post it just in case you didn't. Several colors by different makers out there.

    Snakes, wings, "three whites", oh my! That's a very ambitious project. I agree, she's beautiful. I think I'd leave the wings on, though. And maybe make her irises hit her lower eyelid, lol! It's great you are challenging yourself. Faces are difficult, though. The snakeskin fabric in the link by Lisa wanna b quilter is perfect! Have fun, and good luck!
