I used an image from a woodblock print I made as a teenager as the base for the design. Hope you enjoy seeing my progress.
Postcard size quilt sandwich (muslin backing, cotton batting,
and printed quilt top) ready for quilting and embellishment.
|Project with quilting done on sit-down machine, with Sulky metallic threads, color added with permanent yellow marker, and text stitched with vintage DMC embroidery threads. (thread is in excellent condition, from the 1950s, I believe, and found at a sale. I love the sheen it has!)|
|Back of my project, to get a glimpse of the quilting. I plan to add a plain backing over this back, so it can be written on.|
It is starting to feel like Spring here today. We even flew some kites in our backyard!
Flying the Snake kite I purchased in Seattle in the 1980s!
Nice to have space to fly. Shadow is my husband taking the photos.
Enjoy creating and preparing for spring,
