Quilting Finished

The quilting is finished! This one has taken longer than usual, due I think to the lack of deadline. It is very heavily quilted, and is a result of a few hours at a time, here and there rather than concentrated “git ‘er done” work. This photo shows it on the design wall after blocking, but before the trimming for binding.

Here is a close up of the quilting:

Sunday was entry day for the spring Topeka Art Guild’s show and it needed to be something that had not been shown there before which narrowed the field considerably. Except for a few older things and the newest ones that are committed somewhere else (like “Splash” which was sent off to AQS Paducah yesterday), I had little available. I decided since there was no age limit, to see if they had room for “Seahorses” which had never been there before. The new show opens tomorrow, with First Friday this week from 5-8.

    It must be so rewarding to get to this stage. It’s beautiful. I am glad to see Seahorses–what a treat for the attendees!

    Thanks Martha! It is nice to be able to get the older things out once in a while. So often the shows are limited to new stuff.
