Created the background by drawing with sharpie markers, then adding drops of rubbing alcohol . The colors migrated, and blended into each other and waited till it was dry. Printed the Awesome text from Make The Cut software onto vellum, then free motion quilted over it and tore away excess paper.
A very quick and easy technique.
Serged the edges, and then top stitched fun yarns around edges.
Can't wait to see what I get back via this internet fabric postcard swap.
The quilt is a result of
three different challenges and will definitely become larger. The paper dolls represent
the illegals at our border.
The "transparent" government is playing a shell game hiding the illegals across the country in order to "protect" their privacy. But they don't inform the American citizens and communities who will pay for the illegals.
Both political parties
are pandering to illegals for their possible votes instead of protecting the
American citizens they represent. Just who do US officials represent?
The government is burdening the American taxpayer without their consent
for the illegal's housing, healthcare, education and other financial support.
Where are the illegals
Who are they? Children? Unaccompanied children? " Refugees"?
Terrorists? Gang members?
Why are illegals allowed to break US laws and get rewarded instead of being
returned to their home country?
If the illegals want to
experience the American dream why not come here through the legal process and
earn American citizenship instead of breaking and entering?
