Blue Rose and a Nancy Crow finish
Here is the picture of my Blue Rose that I promised you last week. Sorry it took so long. After I promised to post it I was sick and wasn't in my office to take a picture.
I was undecided how to finish the edges so for now I just slid it into a frame. This was an experiment where I sewed together 5 or 6 layers of fabric and then started cutting away layers. Once I was happy with what was revealed, I applied gesso to the front and added some stamping and other color embellishment. I really like the results and should do more with this technique.
And here is my first finished (other than the hanging sleeve and a good steaming) quilt from the tops I pieced during Nancy Crow's workshop.
The quilting is not going to earn me any awards but I am satisfied with the piece. As I am preparing for a solo show next summer, I want to do more with this "double F" motif and have them all hang together.
