Marjolyn Hannaart (France) Jan Drury (UK) Danica Atkinson (UK) Thomasina Freeman (UK)

Our 4 lovely Portrait Shuffles for today, are another set with completely differing styles.

The date that the Shuffles have to be with us is the 31st July (eeek!) so there's just time to send them back if you'd like to be part of the wonderful exhibit in our gallery at Festival of Quilts. They all have to be mounted on battens before exhibiting, so although late arrivals can be part of the shuffle, they will unfortunately miss the exhibition.

Anyway, today we have a mixed media piece from Marjolyn Hannaart. The frame has the word "Lyn" on it. It's a painted piece with an overlay of net to one face, stencilling, half a leaf and painted branch. Thank you Marjolyn!

Jan has kindly sent us this lovely image of a little girl on the sand. She's gorgeous!

Danica (Dani) has hand stitched the portrait in thick threads and seated it on a background of appliqued fabrics, which have been stitched into place by lines of machining.

Thomasina's piece is, I think, printed cotton mounted onto the canvas with applied fabric with "thomasina" stitched onto it. Thomasina has also included a biography to be sent to her shuffler!

  1. I am very pleased and proud to be part of this event, mainly because it raises awareness to the Charity 'Save the Children' and money for this just cause.
