About Lucy: My art group’s 2015 challenge was Famous Female Faces. I had wanted to make a Lucille Ball quilt for some time and knew she would be perfect for our challenge. She is constructed entirely of six gradations of cotton Cherrywood Hand Dyed fabrics. The pieces were raw-edge fused applique using Misty Fuse. I used two layers of Quilters Dream wool batting and various poly threads.
