I've Been Quilted - NUDE

Every now and then in life we do something crazy - I posed NUDE. Ferret mentioned she needed a "real" woman's figure to do as a quilt - so I volunteered. It took lots of guts to get the robe off, but once I did, I got comfortable. My daughter Heather took the photos - as an artist she knew what to look for. My only worry was sending nude photos via email. I made sure the photos went to Ferret's home computer - it would NOT have been funny had they landed on her work computer, ha, ha. Of course my girls tell me my nude photo is somewhere out in cyberspace - so much for "quilt porn", ha ha.

See the full quilt (in all my glory) on Ferret's blog (about half way down the page)

The quilt was hung proudly next to the quilt she did of my daughter - from a photo which I had been trying to make into a quilt. Here's a link to the photo Ferret used for Carly's quilt.

Ferret's quilts were displayed in her gallery space at the Birmingham Show in England. My quilt of my daughter still hangs on the wall unfinished.
