International Quilt Festival 2017 part 1

The International Quilt Festival is in full swing! This year I have dolls in three of the exhibits:  
"Hannah" in the In Celebration of the Doll invitational exhibit. 
The clothing is made from hand felted merino wool which has been eco-printed with eucalyptus leaves, vintage cotton lace and hand dyed silk chiffon.  The face is sculpted with needle and thread, and colored with pastels and prisma pencils.

"Faith, Hope & Charity" in the Material Girls exhibit.
These dolls are also eco-printed with eucalyptus, oak, Japanese maple & rose leaves.

"Anticipation" and "Remembrance" in the Now and Then TAODA exhibit.
Made with hand dyed silk satin, silk gauze and pearl cotton braid. "Anticipation" is eco-printed with Chinese tallow and chinaberry leaves, symbolizing radiance and hope. "Remembrance" is eco-printed printed with oak leaves, which symbolizes strength and stability.
