Last summer, I started two pieces in a workshop with Cindy Needham. One was the piece called Mystic Glacier, that I wrote about in my last blog... now finished and the paperwork submitted for a juried show.
Today I want to share some photos of the other piece. It had a tortured beginning, but oh it is fun now... here's a little sneak peak. All the machine work is complete, and I am starting to sew on some highlight beading.
Here is the bottom - now you can see that this is a pillowcase... a vintage, lovely pillowcase. I stuffed the batting inside, and put a piece of Gold Radiance at the bottom to highlight the crochetwork. I still have work to do on the bottom so the back of the pillowcase does not show, and I have to disguise the shadowing of the Raadiance across the bottom - I'll do that differently the next time I do a pillowcase!
I also found some lovely vintage lace that will be added on this, and a lot more beading...
fun, fun.... photos again when finished !!
oh so happy quilting,
