By Joshilyn Jackson the novel THE GIRL WHO STOPPED SWIMMING features a main character who is an art quilter. Her artistry was based on MY work that Joshilyn admired. She commissioned an art quilt which was described in detail in the book. Of a bride, who uses recycled materials with bizarre embellishments like her child's baby teeth hidden in Victorian shoes! I got model teeth from my dentist to fulfill that particular request! The author sent me the description before the book was even finished. The headress had to be detachable because Joshilyn was taking it on tour for book launchings! I bought a wedding dress at the Salvation Army which is reborn as the subject's dress. I also did a dozen framed post cards for her which I believe she gave as gifts to certain people. Here is the quilt. Also a couple of the post cards.
Joshilyn gave me a nice write up in the acknowledgements section of the book. It was a real honor to be remarked upon in this way. I felt sort of immortalized! haha.
