I Got It Done!

I hope you haven't been holding your breath since my last posting. It's been way too long for that!

I did make the deadline and here is the result. It's called Navigation and is part of a Fiber Revolution exhibit to be shown first at the South African Quilt Festival and then in Gabarone, Botswana.

In this detail shot you can see the embroidery. It's an almost whole cloth quilt: I've been trying hard to work with whole cloth composition, but can't seem to resist adding those little squares, even though there are only three on this piece.

Fiber Revolution is an online group of East Coast-ish SAQA members I belong to.

This postcard shows the work that will be exhibited in Africa.

We're pretty excited about this. I'm happy that my work--if not myself--will be on the same continent as my daughter who is into her second year in the Peace Corps in The Gambia.
As others have said before, my quilts travel more than I do!
