Summer Mystery Quilt

This was a mystery quilt that was sponsored
by Pieceful Mountain Quilt Guild.  
We were given the instructions
monthly until we completed the quilt.
It is a fun way to construct a quilt. 
 You are not sure what it will look like until you finish it.

From Sketch to Quilt"

"Sticking Your Neck Out"

I finally got it together to enter a competition in
Quilting Arts Magazine.
My giraffe was selected for publication.
I am thrilled.
It seems like I have finally been validated.
What an honor!


I made a sun print with the fabric using plants in the yard.
I used a photo I had of Emma to make a drawing on tear away paper. 
 I put the paper sketch on the fabric and used my sewing machine to go over the lines of the drawing.  
The paper dissolved in water and I was left with
this image.
