A Leap of Faith




A Leap of Faith was made in response to What's In A Name Challenge sponsored by Quilting Arts Magazine. While sadly it did not get published, it has received many offers from potential buyers. This is a close up view. It is machine pieced and appliqued, thread painted on solvy. Planet has a textural feel from both directly applied paint and cellophane that was colored with wax pastel crayons and subsequently ironed to a lacy like appearance. Embellished with Swarovski crystals to simulate stars.

Wow, I love the movement and colors- and how you've integrated some traditional elements into the design!

What do we have to do to get you to show us the whole thing?
