F-16 Complete!!!

Yeah I'm finished except for the sealant. I used a pack of paper from Michael's called Slab III (had it in my stash) and some white wallpaper I had around. Lots of squares and triangles needed to be cut but it was fun. The quilt pattern is called The Ohio Star. Thought it was fitting since the F-16 is a star invention of Dayton, OH. I didn't want replicate that on the back so I just used a series of triangles from the leftover paper for the bottom of the plane. Thanks for looking.

What I've been working on

I haven't been here forever because of the craziness of the end of year school, too much work, getting ready for my DD's graduation and the above F-16. The place I work, K12 Gallery, was commissioned to find 50 artists in Dayton and the surrounding area to decorate the fiberglass airplanes so that they can be displayed throughout the city this summer. I took one on. Here is the before picture. They are about 5 feet tall and 3 feet at the wingspan. It's been fun. Completed project coming soon.
