During the Gwen & Freddy retreat I was sitting next to a remarkable artist, Marion. Her blog is well worth looking at. She makes these amazing art dolls with your own scraps. Lots (maybe all?) of the ladies at my table bought a small or large doll. I didn't get my order in fast enough to get it at the retreat, but I did place an order that just came today. What a treasure!
From the bottom to the top, I love all the details.
On the left, you can just see that she's carrying a basket. These fabrics are all from the quilt that I worked on at the retreat. All of this was scraps that I was throwing away! Marion added in beads, wire art and the button face. It's all placed on an antique bobbin.
What a great keepsake from a fabulous retreat. She will have a place of honor in my sewing room. More photos of Marion's dolls and fabric flowers here and check out her completed retreat quilt top here. Fun, fun fun!
