We spend winters in Arizona and last winter I had several dental procedures done in Los Algodones, the dental capital of Mexico. It occurred to me that the subject would be weird for a quilt, so I retrieved the plaster mold of my teeth to paint and use as an embellishment.
Spanish Trident gum packages are also relics of my dental forays. Other embellishments are teeth sections of zippers, beads, laser embossed plastic, and florescent nylon twine. Dental floss is used for stitching and to secure the toothbrushes. Weird!
