paper quilt 'flower girl'


i found this vintage hat last weekend. i usually get such a great price from the dealers since lots of these old hats are squashed and faded. i take them apart and use the flowers, leaves, net, and silks in my art work. this hat inspired the color scheme for a paper quilt submission that i sent off today.


i dropped it off at the photo lab for a large format scan and really missed the piece in my studio.
this is the second submission i have sent off in a month! the waiting part is the hardest. . .

a photo of my wool felt palette. . .

No images for me, either. But in the mean time, I just wanted to let you know that I stumbled upon your blog and I am having fun reading your archives. I'll be back to see the hat images...

i have no idea why the pictures keep popping off and on. i think it is a server problem.
hopefully tomorrow everything comes up ok.

happy friday, Julie
