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!

  3. George – I love it! It’s pretty saucy!!! It was never like that in the University Library…. My children would love that turtle – no doubt their first question would be ‘is that a leatherback?’! Seriously, the piecing looks incredible – I am feeling full of awe!

  6. I think you’ve done a wonderful job! And the subject really speaks to me of all those afternoons I used to spend sitting in libraries and reading away! So peaceful.
    I’m almost done with my JQ for the Quilt Association by the way. It will be coming up on my blip shortly!


It is lovely to hear your thoughts
