This vibrant lovely has been languishing in a drawer just waiting for the day when I would find a way to make use of her. I made the face in a class with Yvonne Porcella called “Jewelie” where she taught a fusible method for making freeform images. At last I decided to use the piece in a sewing machine cover just to give her a new purpose and outlook on life. She’ll keep dust off the machine while it’s idle, and she’s got a great view of everything happening in the sewing room. Even though there are several quilt projects waiting in the wings, I’ve popped the top onto the machine and I’m off working on paper projects. As if managing fabric and quilting supplies wasn’t enough, I’m dragging paint, paper, punches and more out of the closet! I think this charming lady needs a name. She’s Carmen-Miranda-like, but I’m blank. Any ideas?
