Fiber Art for a Cause
April 1 is the deadline for sending in jpg submissions for "Collage Mania 2009" a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society. This is my first time participating in Fiberarts For A Cause, but I understand that the donated collages will go into an on-line exhibit and then be available for purchase at specified times at the beginning of May. (Here are the details.) You can see last year's gallery here.
My donation "Spring to Summer" is an 8x10" fantasy floral art quilt. The background is hand-painted cotton layered with parts of faux silk flowers held in place by a layer of tulle and free-motion quilting. I have a photo walkthrough for this technique on Flickr. I used kunin felt as the support/backing. This was donated in memory of my mom's older sister Flo whom we lost to cancer in 1997.
