I like to use colored pencils to color the pieces. It's SOOO much easier to get the colors right and not accidentally put background where hair goes plus you get an idea of what she will look like. I'm adding the fabric license plate SWEET HOME from a quilt shop in Alabama. (My daughter and I love the movie Sweet Home Alabama and this fairy is for her.)
The necklace is a thimble but I just had to sneak a gecko into the quilt.
And she is doubly blessed to have this extra fairy in her quilt.
I heavily quilted the background so....
.....her face would pop out!
This brown/orange batik was absolutely perfect for her frame.
Home Sweet Home Fairy......for Lynn.
May you have many happy years in your new home.
