World Series Quilt – Post #5

I'm making progress on my quilt which is good because the deadline is drawing near. I've got pictures of a few of the other quilts that I'll share over the next few days. But here's mine:

There are still flowers to add and I have to quilt it. Click on the photos to make them bigger and you'll see more detail.

I've shown it in my recent classes and every time I try to explain it I choke up. Who knew this was going to be so emotional?!

You may be noticing that this is not my usual invisible hand applique. In our book, Applique Outside the Lines, I had begun doing more expressive stitching. I'm still needleturning, but I'm stitching with perle cotton in exposed stitches. I like it! You're going to be seeing a lot more of this from me.

  1. Whether its Alzheimer’s or vascular dementia, which my mother had, its all devastating. I watched my mother deteriorate from an intelligent highly educated person into a mindless being. Just hope researchers find a cure soon. Am glad to see you and other talented quilters helping to find a cure. Thank you.
