    Spanish Dancer

    I started this little (33 x 35) quilt at a church quilt retreat a couple of weeks ago. I didn't want to take one of the big quilts I've been working on so I started the Spanish Dancer that I had been thinking about for several months. She still needs a little more quilting in a few small areas but otherwise she is all finished. I hand dyed the background fabric because I couldn't find anything in my stash that would work with her.

    I am so impressed with the collage work I see on this board and this is no exception. Seems even more difficult without busy fabrics. I hope to find a class near me sometime soon.

    Impressive. Did you come up with the pattern and draw it out yourself?

    Absolutely stunning! We used to live in Santa Fe and went to many traditional dance events and I can tell you that your interpretation of traditional costume is perfect. She looks like she could just jump off the picture and finish her dance on your hard wood floor.

    This piece is lovely!! I am happy to see you put a sleeve at the bottom to keep “her” hanging straight.

    Just stunning. Thanks for posting your "in progress" picture as it really told the story of how impeccable your cutting, piecing and quilting had to be. How did you quilt the dress.........raw edge applique with a straight stitch 1/16" from the edge or something else? Whatever, you did a marvelous job.
