    My tribute to Japan after the earthquake

    I have watched so many heartbreaking images in Japan, especially of the childre. This little girl is my tribute to the wonderful brave people in that country. It is fusible applique and is not quilted yet.

    Beautiful!!! Is the face painted on the fabric or perhaps you used flesh tone fabric and highlighted it somehow? I really love the expression.

    No it isn't painted, it is applique. I hand dyed the fabric in 5 shades of flesh tone and then used fusible applique. Thank you for the compliment.

    Magnificient! You are truly a material artistic. I've gone back and looked at it several times. I would love to be able to do that.

    Wow, this is fantastic. How were you able to make that face so realistic. Awesome work. Thank you for sharing.
    Desiderata (Max Ehrmann) - Walk placidly amid the noise and haste and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.

    Wonderful job, and a wonderful sentiment. Well done. Can't wait to see it quilted.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.
