my quilt guild challenge project:
We were given a fat quarter and a fabric fortune cookie with which we could create anything that incorporated both the idea of fortune and the fabric. Photos 5 -7 here show the challenge fabric (an oriental pattern in grays and gold). My fortune said, ‘To know the mind of a woman, listen to her words.’
I paired vintage nude images with quotes by famous women. The book is entirely composed of fabric with various embellishments including antique lace, button, beads, antique jewelry and ribbon. Some pages include pull out ATCs. The book is bound by weaving ribbon through the 5 signatures.
