In continuing with my posts on the International Fairy/Folk tale challenge, I’m featuring Pinocchio by Emily Stevens. She writes of her piece, “After looking through many children’s books on the fairy tale and making several original drawings, it was fun coming up with my own original image of Geppetto and Pinocchio. After that, it was hand painted, appliquéd, and quilted.”
Personally, I find it fascinating to see how each of the thirty quilters interpreted the fairy/folk tales. It will be long a time until I get to see how the French and Japanese quilters do the same. Darn!
