Tell us the story behind your panel:
I am the oldest of five. I envisioned this project a family collaboration. We all gather once a
year for Thanksgiving and so it became the perfect venue for this project. My niece, Mariah
designed and drew the pictures and my nieces, nephews and grandchildren did the coloring.
I then scanned them into the computer and then printed them onto cloth. I cut them out and
appliqu~d them onto space fabric. I beaded the eyes. I then used a machine embellisher to frame
the individual animals with various fibers. I added several pieces of silk fusion to simulate
galaxies. I then quilted the piece with variegated thread and finished the edges with yarn.
