Hand appliqué; combination of hand and machine quilting. Adaptation of pattern by
Helen Scott, "Bonnet Girls: Gentlewomen" This is how I got the reflection of the
quilt and picture on the wall within the mirror: I used my digital camera to take
a picture sideways, as if I was in the position of the mirror. It was fed into the
computer, sized to the proper ratio then printed on fabric which I sewed behind the
mirror frame. Flowers on the dresser have started to drop their petals. This has
become a "trade mark" of mine, as I now have a few fallen leaves or petals in most
of my work. This wall hanging was such a joy to make that I'm just completing another
one. It takes a lot of planning and patience, as each appliquéd piece is padded. It
is well worth the effort.
