I moved my studio and have been trying to get back into the swing of things. I had a painted whole cloth that I actually started quilting ages ago but put away because I was unhappy with the quilting. After the studio move I decided, rather than moving that piece from cupboard to cabinet many time over, I would cut it apart – part it out! So here is a little bit of that whole cloth, salvaged and free motion quilted… I’m trying to get comfortable working/playing in my new (smaller and much less private) space. Sometimes we just have to sit down at the quilting (or sewing ) machine and move on.
About this piece – As I said it is a portion of a larger hand painted piece. It is really free motion quilted which means I didn’t mark it. It has wool batting which quilts beautifully. I just started with one flower and filled in every space for a tight and balanced design. Oh, I’m feeling better already!
