It has been a long summer of sewing deadlines but it is all good. I have stayed true to my commitment to produce more work and, hopefully, better work this year. I still have several deadlines between now and the end of the year but I am looking forward to when I can assess how things went.
This is one of the latest pieces I finished. Precious Land along with Rift Valley were my entries into the SAQA Call to Artists for their next show, Concrete and Grasslands. I won't know until November if either was accepted. I will keep my fingers crossed but I feel very good about this latest piece. Here is a detail of the larger piece. This was made with hand-dyed and commercial cottons with a large amount of free-motion stitching. It has one long vertical seam in it so I can almost say it is pieced. However, the majority of the quilt is raw edge applique.
