Greetje Hein – Flight
How far will they fly?
Inspiration: Our granddaughter asked me how far the puffs could fly. At that moment I had my idea for “Flight”.
One day I walked home from school with our five year old granddaughter. She picked a dandelion and blew the puffs away. Then she asked me this question. At home she posed for me. I enlarged the photo and used it for the appliqued girl.
The background for the quilt is hand dyed. The dandelions are done with acrylic paint and free-motion stitched with rayon thread. The girl is a fused applique and also free-motion stitched with rayon thread. The details on the face I did with intense pencils. The puffs are hand embroidered.
Of course our granddaughter is very proud she posed for this quilt. She just got a ring for her good marks at school and really likes the ring on the quilt.
