- A Project For: Felicity
- Age: 7 months
- Location: Grand Rapids, Michigan
Despite me being a quilter and my mother owning a fabric store, I couldn't for the life of me find anything I liked (or could afford). That was until I saw the "Little Kukla" line from Suzy Ultman. . . . **swoon** I am such a nerd, I actually wrote her a letter proclaiming my ultimate fan status to her work. She never responded. Hahahah.
The onion dome print that I used in the drapery panels was my launching point. I thought of cold winter days in Moscow, St. Basil's Cathedral, onion domes, and matryoshkas.
Eclectic, inexpensive, quirky, whimsical
All fabrics came from my mom's fabric store. https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Designer-Fabric-Boutique/227942903944799
