Gossamer Spring

Gossamer Spring was made for the Quilts Around The World Group for the challenge: "Different". Things that I did new/different for my work was using crocheted flowers, zippers for stems, jewelry wire stamens and new rather than re purposed fabrics for this piece! The entire quilt was done by hand.
Hand embroidery and beading gives a rich texture to this piece.I love the three D look!

Gossamer Spring will show at the Dixon May Fair, Dixon CA May 4-8 2011;

and will be offered for jurying for the Vacaville Juried Art Show May 13, 2011.

She is for sale for $200 to be taken into possession after the fair ends and the Juried Art Show should she get in.

Size: 19 1/2" X 17"

This is really pretty Lynn. I like the texture given by the crocheted flowers. They have given the guilt that added 'oomph'. it is inspiring to get out some started but not finished projects and get hand sewing!
