Moulin Rouge Dancer

My latest finish is a Love Quilts square for a quilt with a music and dance theme. I fell in love with this graphic style dancer from the X-Plore Moulin Rouge leaflet. The designer is Stephanie Hedgepath and it's published by Jeannette Crews. I see that it is a download on Patterns Online too. This was just so much fun to stitch. Pretty colors used in such an interesting way. No fractionals, and almost no backstitching. And check out that super-model type expression on her face. I'm amazed there is any facial expression since the stitching is so simple, but that mouth is really pouty! She's just such a Parisian. The fabric is actually white but it may look blue in the photo. Hope she doesn't seem too risque for the quilt. I often seem to pick designs that are a bit edgy for these things.

What a lovely piece. Sign of a good designer to get so much expression with so little detail, if you know what I mean
