Well, golly! Who knew Betty would be popular!! I was so surprised to receive this in the mail the other day!
I made 'Betty' for the MQAI 2011 traveling exhibit this year. The theme was Art of the Kitchen. There were SO many really cool quilts in the exhibit and I certainly didn't think 'Betty' would be a favorite but I'm so happy she was!!
Of course I had to put some beading on Betty, right! Her earrings are also beaded...a gal has to have bling!
This was my first Viewer's Choice award quilt from the 2009, MQAI - Art of Nature exhibit. It's called 'Who's Watching Whom'. I free motion embroidered the wolves separately then attached to some of my hand dyed fabric. Quite a few of the laves are 3 dimensional. I really enjoyed working on both these pieces!
I did finish my daughter's topper and will post pictures. It turned out quite nice and actually looks VERY nice in our living room! I might have to make another one...I probably need to make a spring/summer one for Dawn too! But first it's onto finishing my butterfly and today I started on a quilt for a Christmas present. Hopefully, they'll get it on time!
