Finished...for now....

As mentioned in my previous post I thought that I would attempt one of the smaller projects from Allie Aller's Crazy Quilting book. I did learn quite a bit while doing it. Most importantly what not to do for one thing...LOL . Always good.



Here is my finished Dreaming Maiden. I could and may add a few more details but for now she seems to be done. I wanted to use what I hand in house without buying anything new. It was a bit of a challenge not having the called for interfacing etc but I went ahead anyway.

I decided to do her in shades of white as her pose reminded me of a bride.



I really tried to get some good pictures. It's very difficult to take pictures of white. You can click on the pictures to enlarge them.


Some of the white trim has a bit of sparkle in it .  I bought it in Micheal's scrapbook department last Christmas.




Now I need to find an appropriate background to applique her to.

Well that's it from me.....I'm joining The Needle & Thread Network today....go over and see what my fellow Canadians are up to.

Take care:)

Your Dreaming Maiden is very beautiful Mary Ann. She has such a pretty face and the white fabric is lovely with all the sparkle and trim. I like how you did her hair. Thanks for sharing your enlarged photos to take a closer look. I look forward to see your applique work.

She is absolutely beautifully done. Her face and hair are lovely and her gown with all the wonderful embellishments looks great.

From my drawing .... I am hoping to manage some pieces of cloth ..or even paper and cloth...that will be a lovely piece or a whole skirt of a dress.....for the current class I'm doing with Karen... this is inspiring .... it gives me the same ideas....
