Vasalisa - continued

Vasalisa is coming down home stretch at long last... the quilting is pretty much completed. Like Baba Yaga, the quilting is minimal with the design the principle element to hold the attention of the viewer. Below is a photo of the quilted top. The border has been added - it is the reverse side of Baba Yaga's colorful border - silver 'flames' on black netting.

Here you can see how the doll will be "held" in Vasalisa's hand. It will be hand stitched in place, with a sheer pocket over-lay to complete the imaged.

Together, the pair of story quilts will, hopefully, command their fair share of attention no matter where they go...
