Description

I started this wall quilt in January 2009 and I've always adored it, but I stalled out on the quilting (first hand-quilting project!) and the binding.  It is made from hand-dyed fabrics, commercial cottons, and silk drapery selvedges.

Beautiful work, lovely moody blues and colours washing into one another. I see I'm not the only one who creates a quilt top and then leaves it lying about for years because I haven't a clue how to quilt it! How about a sort of tree of spirals design, as in Klimt's Stoclet Frieze?

Actually part of the problem with this one is that I started handquilting it in a sort of rectangular grid...I like that, but its time consuming! Also I am taking out the embroidery across the lower third and redoing it with a different thread/pattern/color combo.
