Just looking at it, you think, "hmmm, interesting...,"  The fact is that it is amazing.  This dress is made up from "shopping" bags that she probably only received the day before.  Yes, shopping bags made out of that sort've  flimsy, woven textile'ish stuff.  How fast could you put one together?  Probably would've made a cool quilt as well.

Chinese Pandas
Quilt #: 1023448  Added on 09/10/2014
 
Owner: Judy Lyon
 
Made By: Judy Lyon
Year Made: 2000 - Approximate
 
Located In: Lansing, KS United States
 
Description Statement:
As I sat listening to news of the Earthquakes in China I felt inspired to draw a Panda pattern. Exploring photos of these seemingly, roly-poly animals was warm and fun – not at all like the awful situation in Asia. I ended up drawing both a vertical and horizontal panto.
I wanted the Vertical Panda-Bamboo” for my quilt. I was excited about piecing it on the long-arm machine. I put together the strips of bamboo leaves and the strips of lanterns, then “pieced” it all together on the machine. It was fun albeit a bit of a challenge.

Quilter's Quips and Tips: The Dream Rocket Project Needs Your Help
September 15, 2014
Back to Top
Posted in Quilters Quips/Tips  |   Submit a Comment

The Dream Rocket project needs you! (Click here to learn more about the project.) They have a Kickstarter campaign with which they hope to raise $100,000 by October 14, 2014.  The funds raised will be used to build a framework around a Saturn V rocket. This framework will hold a 32,000 square foot quilt (click below to see artwork images.)  They must meet mandatory deadline dates with the U.S. Space & Rocket Center for their contract to stay in force. These dates are approaching and if they cannot meet their funding goal, they will likely not meet their deadlines, and the five-year project will have to close up shop.

View over 6,000 images of art on Flickr here.

Each contributor will receive a gift, depending on the size of the donation.  Some of the gifts are pretty awesome, including a set of three "Women who Change the World" magnets and an adult-size shirt with Twenty Astronaut autographs.

The Dream Rocket Project began in 2009 with an ultimate goal of collecting 8,000 works of art that would be assembled side-by-side and used to wrap the Saturn V Moon Rocket at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center (USSRC) in Huntsville, Alabama. A temporary installation is scheduled from May 1 - June 30, 2015.

The Apollo program is a powerful story about sacrifice, innovation, collaboration, and achievement despite adversity. 




Through research and creative arts, we discovered a similar thread of perseverance and teamwork. People of all ages explore, learn, and question the world around us, which has inspired us to “Dream Big,” and ask, “How can we make a difference”? By wrapping the Saturn V with our dreams, the rocket can serve as an inspiring visual symbol of our collaboration and perseverance.

Your pledge will make it possible for youth from around the world to connect to this mighty rocket, which sends a powerful message to youngsters about successes beyond our current imagination.

Prepare to be inspired! In 2008, during a dark period in her life, artist Lisa Sipes was encouraged by her mom to give quilting a try - and a passionate new quilter was born. Now a well-regarded professional longarm artist who loves detailed work, Lisa shares fun ways to add visual and textural interest to a wholecloth quilt with a variety of stitches and colored threads. She also shows how she creates her signature "triple stitch" and alternative ways to finish the edges of your quilt. We end by visiting with the amazing and inspirational Nola Emerie, who, after suffering a massive stroke at age 52 that paralyzed the right side of her body, decided to take up quilting. You won't want to miss this!
