Recycled Spools

A tree is made of spools with glued fabric scraps. At the base, gifts including scissors, thimbles, knitting needles, safety pins, fabrics and other sewing essentials.
The girls with spool arms and legs are sitting in a giant candy that split open.

Just When The Caterpillar Thought The World Was Over...


The quilt is my fable of the butterfly's life cycle with a moral. The leaf, leaf with eggs, the eaten leaf that feeds the caterpillar, Chrysallis and emerging butterfly. The circle represents the world and the bar code is to count blessings!
It was designed in Make the Cut software. A circle and bar code were Boolean joined. Node editing from lines into curves provides a path for caterpillar to transform into a butterfly. It was cut with my electronic cutter and free motion embroidered and quilted.
