I am so excited...I have entered into my first World Con Art Show...And it just happens to be in my old hometown of Chicago...It couldn't get any better. Here is a link to Chicon. http://www.chicon.org
I received great feedback on the quilt I have shown at both Orycon and Norwescon. Unfortunately, it was not for sale since I made it for my niece. But I still had the pattern. (Half of the work was developing the pattern.) So I decided to do a series of 10 quilts using this pattern.
Here is a photo of the original quilt. This one is called "Mother Dragon"
This one is called "Dragon on the Prowl". The Dragon is hand-beaded and the pattern was free-formed as I beaded it on upholstery fabric. The back is 100% cotton and is machine embroidered. Lining is 100% cotton.
This next one is stone and beads on purple rayon/silk velvet. It's called "Spirit Stone". I was inspired by the spirit image in the stone. The back is 100% silk and is hand-smocked. Lining is 100% Cotton.
I will be showing these at Chicon as well in addition to a few more bags. I hope to start my next batch this weekend.
Well, that's it for now....I will post again when I am further along in my next project and may reveal some of my other bead/fabric art. :-)
