If you’ve been looking for something unique and extra special to make for a girl (or a grown woman) in your life, this amazing quilt is the ticket! I’m crazy about this quilt! I can also see these quilt squares made into book covers!
I love the way BelieveMagic dresses up these girls she appliques on this quilt! Their ruffled dresses are filled with details, hand stitching, bits of lace and rick rack, labels, charms, buttons, tiny knots. The sky’s the limit when you’re dressing these gals up! Each girl is created from several fabrics and embellished with thread, found objects and sometimes a dimensional dress that literally pops off the quilt. She also uses text print fabrics for ‘skin’ to depict the stories, memories and wonder we each carry with us. Each of her art quilts are an adventure of stitched joy.
I made one of these for my 5 yr old granddaughter’s bed and she got so excited when she saw it! She will be able to pass this down to her children when she is grown, or she may just want to keep it for herself. I still have the sweet quilt my Mom made me when I was young and it’s so special to me…I could never part with it.
These girl’s she makes to put on her quilt reminds me of Kelly Rae Robert’s painted mixed media art. I collect a lot of her stuff and that’s probably why I got so excited when I saw this quilt.
