quilty princess

Last weekend I joined in on a class making fabric portraits - imaginary "creative princesses", taught by danish artist Bodil Gardner. The 20 women had so much fun. Here is a link showing the class and the 21 finished portraits. Bodil is the sweetest and most inspirational teacher, and her pictures are so full of life - I just love her work.

This class was part of the "Vestlandstreff" weekend - a get-together that is arranged every other year. This year it was my guild, Rogaland Quiltelag, who hosted the event in the town of Stavanger. Lots of planning and work over more than a year to host. I was part of the commitee for putting together the quilt exhibition, presenting works done of our guilds members. We had a busy and funfilled weekend!!! Lots of quilters from out of town and other parts of Norway attended.

I have been working some more on the portrait - not sure I'm completely happy, or finished yet:
Any ideas?

Oh my gosh! Love your princess! The butterflies you added are the perfect touch. Maybe you could add a flight line behind a couple of them.

I think it's completely wonderful just the way it is!
