I love quilts that depict strong women!  A Woman of Sophisticated Substance is my newest series in this genre. Each quilt in this series begins with a silhouette of one or more elegant women. The embellishments on each quilt are added to convey a balanced life of fun and accomplishment to carry out the theme of substance and sophistication.

The first quilt in the series,  A Woman of Sophisticated Substance #1,  measures 17 x 24 inches. It  is embellished with crystals, buttons and cowrie shells. The words “celebrate” and “making the world a better place” are appliquéd on the front of the quilt. The border is a colorful explosion of flowers because every woman must have flowers in their life, right? Sprinkled throughout the flowers are purple crystals and green buttons. The fabric on the back depicts colorful African women. There is a hanging sleeve on the back for easy display and a label that documents the quilt. I signed A Woman of Sophisticated Substance #1, on the front and included a charm that says made with love.

The women in this series of quilts are women after my own heart. Each quilt in this series is one of a kind and would be an elegant addition to the office of any strong woman. They will be listed for sale in my ETSY Studio Store.
