A quilt I designed and made.  Inspired by the Andy Warhol painting of Marilyn Monroe.  The quilt measures 2m x 2m and is hand quilted.



I made it to be auctioned for charity at a charity event here in Dubai. The theme of the event is 'Chocolate at the Movies" The gold in her hair is made from chocolate foil-wrappers.  I reinforced it with iron-on interfacing but it is quite fragile and working with it was a challenge!



This is the back of the top layer.
At the moment the quilt hangs in the shop window of the Craft Land shop.  The are sponsoring me.

I love this!  Where is the Craft Land?  I lived in Dubai for 3 months and never knew there was a craft store!

Hi YumJello

It is in the Town Center Jumeirah in Beach Road.  Next to Mercato.  The shop has been there for about 2 years now.

That should bring in some great money for your charity.  Beautiful.  Your patience in dealing with the chocolate wrappers makes it even more amazing.
