Elizabeth completed

Elizabeth is finished! I was aching to finish her but she was put off until I could wrap up Focus: Fiber entries. I sent the juror 395 images of fiber work to consider. She will have a hard job. There was a large variety of techniques and of great quality it should be a good (I hope great) show. We open September 28 (I think) in Erie Pa at the Erie Art Museum. Details will follow.

Back to Elizabeth. I think she is finished for the most part but I am going to add stitching and possible from beading on the wainscoting and a bit more stitching on her forearm to match her hands. Then I need to find a photo for a Quilt National submission. I know what I want to do, now where did I leave the photo. The hunt begins!

I was anxious about the stitching on the hands but I think it turned out well.

I love the gentle expression on the face which drew the photo to me. When I got the fabric and started to compose her I realized how detailed the dress was, and fun to do all the detailed stitching, makes the piece pop a bit if I do say so!

This week I am spending quality time at QSDS in Columbus with all my peeps. Rosalie Dace's master class. We only have 8 people which makes it a great time to get to know each other and Rosalie.

 Everyone has something interesting working, self included. I will not be showing you any work. It's a Quilt National year and I don't want to jeopardize anyone's chances. If I was truly evil I would take a picture of every board, post them on Pinterest and be the only eligible to be in the show (buwahaha!!!) NOT!!!


  1. Thanks Many for this informative post. i am also doing stitching work in my free time. I have learn stitching in the ditch which is used in several different ways such as top stitching method where two pieces of fabric create a seam.
