These are close ups of the ladies on my Japanese Ladies Quilt. I went with a Friend to Pat Cox class for this, but it was all hand applique, which I couldn't do at the time, so I bought ALL 9 patterns and came home and did it all by machine!
I was unable to take good pictures as I really needed someone else to do it, as with my neck, I couldn't look up to see what I was doing, so the camera was just clicked when I thought the lady was in the frame so to speak.
Hmm. you see I forgot which ones I had taken a picture of, and I have missed one off completely. I have put them as they are on the Quilt. Hopefully, Yahoo will leave them alone!!!
I haven't a clue how I managed this, her face is all squished poor thing.
Here is the complete Quilt in situ. The ladies clothes are made from Silks a friend bought me when she went to London and visited Liberty's, she saw a pack of scraps and thought of me. They were perfect for this Quilt. The borders are all Polycotton, in those days I couldn't afford 100% cotton, besides, there wasn't the shops we have nowadays. The quilting in the purple flowered borders is of a lotus blossom, all done by hand. Gosh!
Those teds get in everything in this house!!
