Cloth Paper Scissor's Paper Quilt Challenge


CONGRATULATIONS!

Dear Artist,
Your “True Colors” quilt has been chosen for the exhibit in Chicago! I entered the Cloth Paper Scissors Magazine challenge -Mixed Media Paper Quilts search and mine was chosen. It was supposed to be something that represented your personality as well as being made from mixed materials and paper. So I took a digital photograph of the cat painting that I did awhile ago, which is my symbol design on this blog. The painting was called "Social Butterfly" . The inside body of the cat is made up of different butterflies, which represent how I like to flit around, yet I am also quite a loner at times like many cats. Then I cut the color print out apart, separating the legs, and head from the body of the cat. I created a fabric backing and a painted and stamped background. Then I began to sew the pieces together like you would do in a crazy quilt. I added the Tea Cup and the metal #4, along with a picture of two women to show that I do like company in my life, even if it is only something as simple as having tea. The buttons added a nice finishing touch, don't you think?


Maybe I'll have to take a road trip during the Make it University Event and head off to Chicago!
