shalom ~ a peaceful girl collage

hi there ~

this collage was inspired by a watercolor i had painted of my daughter-in-law, and then created into a collage.  

i quilted the words, “piecing princess” into it as a special touch, as it will be also be a sample that will hang in the quilt shop, the sewing palace bernina, in helena, montana.

i do really enjoy quilting with the bobbin play action, silver metallic thread, and adding a pretty framing with a beautiful hand-dyed yarn couched free motion into the binding…

this will also be my newest pattern, and it will be called “shalom ~ peaceful girl.” 

i had a great time putting her together, and i love the black and white printed fabric used for her hairdo,  as well as a half flower for the “bow” on the back of her dress.  

i designed this collage to specifically utilize the large scale flower stash i’ve accumulated; mostly from the the westminster line of fabrics, designed by kaffe fasset, brandon malby, etc.  

the “theme blooms” in the dress are from a line of fabric, “kanvas felicity floral berry” by the fabric company benartex.  and the color theme for the body of the dress is creamy whites, light blues, soft peachy-pinks with a hit of lavender, and pops of royal blues.

“blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.”  {Matthew 5:9}

thank you for stopping in, and may you know  peaceful blessings today and beyond.

soli deo gloria,
