Madonna of the Blues, a work in progress, part two
(Click on image to enlarge.)
I've stitched. I've beaded. I've back her with batting and some thick, stiff interfacing stuff (can't remember what it's called), cut her out , and turned the edges under. She's now a really big appliqué. Madonna of the Blues is now ready to audition possible backgrounds. I'd like to say I know where this project is headed...but I'm not sure! I'm thinking "frame" not "quilt". Hmmm?
(Heat transferred paints and crayon on polyester, hand stitched and beaded. Current size: 25" x 19"...finished size is anyone's best guess!)
