I have been busy working on a series of quilts for my Advanced Independent Study group meeting with Jane Dunnewold. The three are supposed to be finished before the end of February when the group meets again. The one that is totally finished is called Flying Bikinis (named by my son). If you follow my blog, you have seen the finished top without the quilting and facing.
I used bias strips surrounding pieced silk sari strips. It is totally hand quilted.
Here is a detail shot. You can see the hand quilting better in this shot.
One of the other pieces is finished except for the facing and mounting onto a canvas; the other is in the process of being quilted. I'm hoping to finish the hand quilting tonight. Then, there is some machine quilting that will need to be done. I'll keep you updated as to my progress. Wish me luck on getting the other two totally finished before the deadline. I seem to be REALLY good at getting things started...not so much on the finishing.
