My Lion King Challenge piece is completed. I showed sneak peeks over the last two months, now it is done and submitted. Cherrywood Fabrics will announce the finalists on July 8th, so I am crossing my fingers that mine will be chosen.
I was inspired by images of the Tree of Life, the Sun, Gazelles and patterns I found used in costuming and the sets of the stage production of the Lion King.
I quilted each section differently, added applique elements, did some thread painting, made some confetti applique pieces, did a touch more thread painting, and added in some glitz with hot fix crystals.
Waiting to hear what quilts were accepted for the traveling exhibit is hard, though I imagine that it is even harder for Cherrywood Fabrics to choose only 120 finalists out of over 300 entries!
