Guess what? The SHATTERED quilt is finished! It is in response to the challenge "I am _______" for the Greenville, NC guild show in April. I really, really enjoyed the process, using tons of free form big stitch quilting.
The colors show up more vividly in the close-up shots.
The bad news is that there is another challenge, this one due the first weekend in March. Just like a school project, I've known about this a long time, but just recently got serious about it. The theme is "A Walk in My Garden". Last night I took out the materials that I had gathered earlier.
With Baby's approval, I pulled out the acrylic paints, fabric medium, stencil brush and freezer paper to stencil stems and leaves.
A while back I had felted a roll of different colored wool. I sliced it and I think that the result will make interesting flower centers. I also cut and fused some more leaves.
I like the direction this is taking. I'll have to do mostly machine stitching and quilting, so I think there is a good chance it will be ready in time.
