Well, except for the sleeve and label- but the quilting is done, and the facing is on. Just in time for me to spend tomorrow working on a 6 X 9 piece to mount on canvas!
Here it is, along with a detail shot showing all the quilting.
I like the background quilting, but don't know if I would do it again on a quilt like this. It is just around the edges, and getting all those lines straight was a bear. I also had lots of stops and starts- no way to do this in one pass!
We had our Surface Design group meeting this week,and many of the pieces that are going to be in the show were there. Plenty of good work, in keeping with the theme 'Hard Times.' We hang the show on the 29th, and the opening is Friday October 2.
In the meantime, back to the studio!
