Pink Madonna

Barbara and I are going to do some Madonna pieces this year where we pass the piece back and forth between us so each can add her own touch to the artwork. The first piece is this one, Pink Madonna.
The central Madonna is a printed fabric that Barbara had. I had given her the embroidered blocks when we met at PIQF 2008 and she added them to the Madonna to sew this arrangement. Now it is my turn to add a few rows of what I want before returning it to Barbara for her next ideas--a bit of a 2 person round robin, I guess. I thought you might like to see our Madonna piece develop as we stitch.









Now, for my part!

This is such a joyful way to show devotion to the Holy Mother.
I absolutely love this project...and the combining of your two creative souls in this work will make it extra special!

This is lovely. I like the way the pink in the star picks up the colors in your embroidery and the central piece. Your additions will only make it stronger.
