I had the pleasure of teaching a design/drafting class to a group of women in Eagle River WI yesterday Monday May 17th. Their quilt guild, Cranberry Country Quilters, were kind enough to invite me to their small but eager group. The guild president, Joan, "J.P.", was very hospitable and lived in this awesome house on Bass Lake. It was fun to step into her studio and see ALL the things she was doing or planned to do. Her husband was a big Tina Turner fan and he liked my "Tina" quilt!! The weather was cooperative and sunny, Christey from Pizazz Salon where I work lent me her GPS (thanks again!!) and it was a blast!!
I first posted this subject with all the materials laying on a table together ready to put together. So, ta-da, it is finished. The rules stated the bra had to be covered both inside and out and also the straps. I received FREE fabric from Christey S. from Pizazz Salon in Menominee MI and it began with the piece of brown and pink fabric which I used on the back of the bra. Then I felt like using pink, my favorite color, not even thinking about the color for breast cancer research etc. I added ribbon, flower trim, sequin dangly trim on the bottom, felt/rhinestone flowers on the top of the cup area and a ribbon/tulle trim on the straps. I hand sewed the fabric to the bra and hot glued all the frou frou. I do not have to send it off until mid-January so I can enjoy it for a little while. I am donating it for a silent auction. I am having a brain drain with naming it-any possiblitities would be appreciated.
