I received a box of beautiful African fabric from a friend that owned a fabric shop. I spread the fabric out around my studio and waited for an inspiration on how I would incorporate it into a doll that would do justice to this unique treasure. The fabric eventually evolved into "Tribute" the first of my Tribute dolls. Her fabrication combined the beautiful African fabric with crazy quilting. Tribute honours the beautiful cloth and the friend who was kind enough to share its beauty with me.
