Shades of Sunshine Quilties: Norma Bullen

Norma Bullen from Victoria, AUSTRALIA has sent in her shades of sunshine quilties due September 20th! Norma wrote me that she thoroughly enjoyed this swap as it kept her thinking beyond her normal range. That is so great!

Below are the rest of Norma's Quilties. You can click on any photo for more detail.

Norma added some directions for us, too. She wrote that she started by making a sheet of fabric paper with serviettes (paper napkins)magazine clippings, other photos, paint, stamps, etc. She hand painted white panne velvet with dye-na-flow paints by Jacquard in hot pink, yellow & scarlet. Norma said she loved how that came out -- me too! Then Norma copied her fabric paper collage onto printer fabric and cut out portions to used, teamed them up with Alpha Stamps fabric images from the bathing beauty sheet. Next, she machine quilted the background, and embellished with hand painted lace, beads & flowers. The "lifesaver" is a washer covered with sparkly threads. The words were printed with a clear dyno labeler and Norma says they came from the depths of her brain : ^ )

Awesome! Thank you, Norma. I am so happy I can choose one for myself!
