Here's my quilt I entered in the Quilting Arts Calendar Contest. The them was "Your Utopia." I chose a land without time because I never seem to have enough time to do what I want to do. Alice is breaking the clocks and throwing them away, therefore, time does not exist. What a luxury!
I used crazy quilt piecing techniques, Alice is a stamp which is colored and then appliqued. There's a bunch of silk ribbon embroidery coming out of the window. All the clocks are beaded and there's lots and lots of embroidery applique. The beading doesn't show up well in the picture. For the contest, I entered a slide, which showed all the detail. But, mine wasn't a winner. What do you think?
