The theme of the Mini QT swap this time around is 3D. My partner is Dolores and she said that she would like a mini quilt featuring one of my whimsical dress linocuts. I loved having her suggestion to work with because it made arriving at an idea so easy. Here is what she received today!
I created a piece of a room with some 3D details, such as the folds in the lampshade, the beads used for the lamp base and table knobs, a tiny frame made of cut Popsicle sticks and hung with a ribbon, and of course, a door that opens!
Inside you will find the linocut print. I call this dress “Smocking” and it is hanging on a bead peg in the closet. I embroidered over the details of the linocut at the dress top.
Up above, I added a hat with a bow and a hatbox with an embroidery floss handle, fed through a flat bead. Down below is a pair of Mary Janes. The mini measures 12″ square.
It was awfully fun creating for you Dee! I hope you smile each time you pull that button door knob and peek inside!
