and the quilting is finally done. YEA!
Then too once I got back to it last week I had to readjust my thinking and build up my stamina to wrestle this piece under the needle. It measures approx. 44" x 36". I've been making so many small pieces of late , 24"or less on the longest side that I got done quickly, one day or less that working on this piece had me in my head whining like a kid on a long car trip. How much longer? Is that all I got done today? Not another bobbin refill.
It's done, so I am not beating myself up about taking those 100 plus days, mainly because I went back over the last three months and totaled up all the smaller pieces I painted, quilted and sold as well as taking note of all the traveling I did for both pleasure and teaching.
Next week I am off to Ohio to teach for the African American Quilt and Doll Guild as part of their quilt show in the Warrensville Heights Civic and Senior Center, 4567 Green Road, Warrensville Heights, OH 44128. So if you are in the area of the On Friday Oct. 17 or 18th stop by. Not sure if there are any spaces left in my class, Painting a Silk with Soy, but if you are interested, call Sandra @ 216-752-3409 to inquire.
Here are two small pieces I painted as demo in my vendor booth while at the Jacksonville, FL quilt show a week or so ago. They too are quilted but need facings which I will get to this week.
