"Zoey Wishes," a new art piece

You'll recall that a few days ago, I took a picture of Zoey in the living room window. She was an angel posing so that I could get her spots just right for a new art piece. Here's that original photo.

And here's the piece of art that I created! Despite several mishaps, this piece came together fairly quickly in just two evenings. I'll write a blog in the next few days about the steps used to assemble this piece.

This piece was created from batik and cotton fabrics. I used variegated thread and free-hand motion on the quilting. You can't see it in the photos, but there are stars quilted into the sky fabric. And the red curtain actually hangs from the piece so that it creates a three-dimensional effect.

This piece is available at the "Women Uncovered" Second Saturday art show at Side Show Studios through June 6.

I titled this piece "Zoey Wishes." What do you think she wishes for when she looks at the stars?
