Jazz Quilt--DONE!!



I don't understand rules that preclude you from showing your quilt on your own website if you're entering them into shows and I'm hoping that posting this one won't affect it for the future, but here's "My Fabulous Cousin Jo Sings Jazz".

That turned out so great, Elle! And that background is perfect.

Deborah said...

I just love it. Great job, Elle. Tell us more about your techniques -- especially the fabu background. That was a gutsy choice and it totally paid off!

Karoda said...

girl, look at you! how fabulous!!!!

mary m. said...

Wow! Did you dye that background yourself? It looks like she has a jazzy aura...it is magnificent!

debra said...

Great quilt. Hope it gets accepted wherever you are entering it.

The thing with not showing publicly is make sure that the attendees of a show are seeing new things... it builds the excitement for attending the show.
