"Mellissa", 38”X38”, 2003, $3,500

This is part of my “Quilted Portrait” series. Mellissa is a fantasy character, perfect for children! There are sixteen squares in all. I started with a small drawing and copied it 16 times. I took 16 different fabrics, one square each. I cut out all of the pieces, using the drawings as patterns. I assembled each individual portrait like a little jig saw puzzle. It is machine appliquéd and machine quilted. All of the eyes are polymer clay.
