HI From Peggy
I have section 12, and a very tiny sliver of the princess.
I think 3 strands of hair, but both shoes.....
If you have section 13, would you like to share some fabric or shall we make her a "punk" princess...perhaps a lock of hot pink? I am happy to trade some of my fabric to you for some matching hair fabric if you do not want a Punk Princess....or perhaps we can coordinate using yarn???
Since you have most of the princess just let me know what you want to do.

It's Cindy again. My top (section9,10) is more or less done, as you can see by the first photo.
The other 2 photos show details of the train and the kite. This is lots of fun!

Hi, this is Cindy, and so far I have a bunch of shapes cut out and wonder undered, but nothing fused down yet. I still have to do my parts of the kite and castle, and finish the train. And the rocket needs a point on the end of the nose. This is section 9-10.

Back to work!

I'm thrilled with my dragon (even if I do say so myself) and love how the spikes turned out. I have no idea about the sky. Any suggestions?

The butterfly will pop when I'm finished with it. Couldn't see it disappear till I saw the photo :)

The mermaid is ready to machine quilt, so whoever is on either side of me you can continue the color scheme of the lettering. Whoohoo! Posted by Picasa

Watercolored Display Board for Library Fundraiser - of course the quilt will be different from this painting - because all the artists are using BRIGHT patterned fabrics - like polka dots, stripes and conversation prints. The 3 stripes throughout the entire piece will be the colors in the painting - red, aqua and orange in the same BRIGHT patterned fabrics, which are the artist's choice. Each artist will choose fabrics that have contrast, so that the lettering will POP out, and that viewers can read the sign from the entrance of the library.
Leah's in Orange has generously donated 10 yards of Warm & Natural Batting for this project! Whooohooo. Section 1 & 2 - Stacy Hurt; Section 3 & 4 - Julie Schlueter; Section 5 - Jamie Fingal; Section 6 - Joanell Connolly; Section 7 & 8 - Terry Waldron; Section 9 & 10 - Cindy Cooksey; Section 11 - Jamie Fingal and Cathy Norton; Section 12 - Peggy Calvert; Section 13 - Vickie Valdez-Green; Section 14 - Anne Copeland. The side panels will be made by everyone.

Side Panels 2' x 5' that will go on each side of the larger quilt - framing the Information Desk Posted by Picasa
The Adventure Starts here - this quilt will be 14 feet wide x 4 feet tall for the new children's section of the Orange Main Library. Artwork by Jamie Fingal. Each art quilter has a section to complete be it 2'x4' or 1'x4' with a 1" margin around the entire piece. Each section will have a top of fused fabrics, Warm & Natural Batting and a back. Each artist will free motion quilt the their own section, and add beads if they so desire. Our goal is to put together the two side panels at our August gathering and to be done with our sections by our October meeting and then we can sew them together. Each artist can document their own progress on this blog by taking digital pictures of their section. Posted by Picasa
