"From the Front Porch: Summer"
The dragonfly was made with Angelina fibers for the wings, and a baroque pearl and some other beads for the body
I made the butterflies and some of the flowers using the caning technique with polymer clays. I hand embroidered with floss and silk ribbons
I had some fun with the embroidery buttons on my machine and variegated threads.
Rosie, my Bernese Mountain Dog, was created using fuzzy fibers on a separate piece of fabric, then appliqued to the quilt using a stumpwork technique.
