For our local Quilt Show, the entry deadline provided just the incentive needed to complete a piece I have been designing and stitching since last Fall. I usually have several things going at once, so extended working periods are not unusual. A finished peice is always rewarding to see. And the process from idea to completion generates new ideas for new work.
A View is a combination of hand dyed fabrics, eco-prints, mono printing, raw edge applique, machine and hand stitch. I used 100% wool felt as batting. This material was easy to hand stitch through and provided a stable, uniform foundation. Once the centered nine patch was created, a boarder was added. The boarder repeated the design elements of shape and line through enlargement of scale. A simple binding was turned to the back, creating a smooth edge. I am very happy with all the results!
