One of the fun books I’ve received from C&T recently contains transfers to be used for either embroidery or painting. The title is Bad*ss Women and it includes a variety of prominent women both contemporary and historical. Here are a few of them (photos courtesy of C&T). You can click on each one to see it better.
A friend and her granddaughter are making a quilt from these transfers, painting the pictures with fabric pens. I love this idea and would be doing the same if I had a granddaughter. I was very pleased to see Nancy Pelosi included. I would have included Mother Theresa, but perhaps the author (or editor) thought calling her a Badass Woman would have been disrespectful. Anyway, I just love the idea of traditionally female fiber arts celebrating prominent women.
C&T has similar books with transfers of pets (Domestic Divas) and plants (Urban Jungle) as well, but the Bad*ss Women are my favorite!
You make an interesting point about Mother Teresa. I imagine she herself, if she’d been included in that non-religiously named book, would have just nodded, smiled and continued on with her work of love!
But I respect the choices the author made, regardless!
Will we get to see the completed granddaughter/friend quilt in future?
I hope so. They live in another state, but the grandmother is a retreat regular, so there’s hope!
Interesting! I’m especially intrigued by using the women’s images. Just last week C&T pulled a book AFTER distribution because it used images for which permissions hadn’t been acquired. !!!
Yikes! They didn’t tell me NOT to review this one when I asked for images, so I guess it’s legit.
I agree on Mother Theresa, she is one of my personal heroes. What a cool book! That quilt your friend and her granddaughter are working on looks like it is going to be wonderful 🙂
The book came along at a good time for them.
