“Rainbow Poppy”

February 21, 2009 § Leave a comment

It’s almost done!  Rainbow Poppy is disperse dyed onto soft  satin.    I     manipulated a digital photo of a poppy and played with it on Adobe Photoshop Photo Elements 5.0.

I am very pleased with the way it is turning out.  I’m almost done with the machine quilting.

The Artfull Bras Project

Members of Quilters of South Carolina have created one-of-a-kind bras for breast cancer awareness.  The exhibit consists of 49 original pieces to make the public aware of breast cancer, to memorialize those lost to the disease, and to honor survivors.

The exhibit will tour South Carolina until October 2009, when the artfull bras will be auctioned, with the proceeds donated to Best Chance Network, a program which provides care and treatment for uninsured women in the state who have breast or ovarian cancer.
