    What a fantastic job you did. You must be very proud. Did you enter it in a show?

    No I did not enter her in any shows, you can see the hair shadowing through arm. It is too small to enter in AQS shows, do I am planning on making a larger one, the leaves and wings will be 3-D as well as the flowers.

    I traced this from a coloring book, (I am a fab tracer, but not an artist) all fabrics are plain, except the hand dyed hair. All colors and details are ink, colored pencil or dye.

    I am planning on making 3 more, one for each season.

    Thanks for your kind words!

    Just trace away, raw edge applique! I experiment with each quilt, and have learned more with each one, that is part of the reason that I want to make it over. Any questions, just PM me.
