Phew! March 20, 2012Posted by George in Quilting and Patchwork.
I have been head down in absolute concentration for what seems like a lifetime on an experimental quilt that is now finished give or take a few twiddles! I am not wholly satisfied, but I am allowing myself credit for trying. She is hand pieced and machine quilted in the main, with the addition of some not very successful foiling, some quite successful painting and embossing and a bit of glitter which in my book can never go wrong!
I must give Gil Elvgren all credit for the inspiration for the female figure and everything else I will leave to your interpretation. I may at some date in the future post about the thinking behind the details but not before I have spent a LOT of time in the garden! Oh – and done some housework!
