At my work, a few months ago,
we started planning a car show & movie night.
We started collecting some great things
to use for a raffle, with all the monies collected
going to 4 different charities.
My "team" chose the Inland Valley Humane Society,
so I decided that I would make a small quilt to donate.
And I figured that an animal quilt would go best.
The following pictures show the quilt,
from when "Elizabeth" was fused on
with her thread-painted face
and the trapunto, from the back.
More thread painting & quilting
One of the sides
(pebbles & weeds?)
and put the quilt's name "Elizabeth"
Showing the fabric I used on the back
And the whole thing!
I really like the way it came out.
I learned a lot doing this one.
Only one thing would have made this experience better...
if they had picked MY name for it at the raffle!!
This is the "real" Elizabeth.
She owns my sister & brother-in-law.
Have a great weekend!
