I have completed the little quilt, the beginnings of which I showed you the other day. The fabric for this quilt was pretty much totally created using the gelatin plate I made whilst taking the Linda Germain class "Printmaking without a Press". Such a great class (do I say that every time?? I think so!) The only part that wasn't printed was the numbering that I used in the interior border, and for that I used freezer paper and paintsticks, and the border fabric, that is a hand-dye from another project.
I have stitched onto the quilt a number of little pictures that represent some of the memories of the day we spent with my guy's daughter and her husband on the property at their new home. It really was a lovely day and it was fun to create a little piece to commemorate that day (so I also included the date of our visit!!).
There is quite a bit of marshland on their property and so I also had to stitch in the resident swan who floats around (almost like a watchdog!!), plus the redwing blackbirds and the kingfishers to name a few. It was a really fun piece to complete.
I'm on to another project. More on that next time. I'll be back....
