“And now she’s in me, always with me, tiny dancer in my hand.”

~Elton John, Bernie Taupin

At last, the first of the Avatar quilts, Tiny Dancer, is complete.  Here’s a look with a few close up shots as well.

The processes include making my own thermofax screens (from my own real world and virtual world photos plus from avatar templates used with permission from Chip Midnight), using Procion MX dyes to print the screened images on cotton fabric, cutting and reassembling, painting and thread painting on commercial fabrics to create the main avatar image, and finally quilting with a thin cotton batting and white thread.
