A few more stitches......

I stuck with it for 3 hours and finished the hand stitching on the binding but still have to sew the bottom edge of the hanging sleeve.  Now I'm glad I only had one choice that worked for the binding because I'm really happy with it.
Gene asked if that was an oil painting next to the bookcase unit that I just moved.  Yes, this is my art gallery wall.  Back in the  1970s there was a really active art league in this town and I bought several paintings from the artists.  The art has hung in various rooms and now I just enjoy them all in one spot.  The one on the far left is a quilt pattern made of painted wood pieces, very popular in the 1980s. 

I moved my blue and turquoise stash onto the bookcase last night instead of boxes on the bottom shelf.

Finished quilt and it looks great. Looks like more progress in your moving of fabrics. Foggy this morning and we are to get sun. Hope you have a great day. Chris

this newest piece is very lovely - painterly.

Gene Black said...

Wow, you are much faster at hand sewing binding than I am. (which is why I usually do it on the machine) The quilt looks great.

Thanks for the look at the paintings.

What a great place to keep your art collection so that you can enjoy it!

Oh, wow! The shibori pieces came out great, and I just love the composition you did. I agree the binding is perfect! Isn't it funny how things sometime work out?

I love this piece! Now I am encouraged to hunt through my fabric and do a similar one. Thanks for sharing. We all need periodic perks for creativity.

Now I understand what you meant in a previous post about having to piece the binding so it followed the color sequence in the inner border. What a stunning result. It was well worth the effort.

What a wonderful work space . . . with a microwave, even!

Congrats on sticking with it, too!

your studio is looking very nice and colorful with all the fabric out and the art on the wall - a nice atmosphere for being creative.
love how the quilt turned out with the binding that you chose.

It's fabulous! I hope you will share it in the Flickr group and I'd love to feature it on the blog if you don't mind.

Great finish!!! I love the binding.

Your art wall looks terrific. Wonderful idea.

Love the quilt and I love the picture of your sewing room... especially the table with the 4 chairs to sit at and plan quilts, etc. Really nice.

This piece looks like it should be hanging in your daughters gallery. Another 'show stopper' and makes me think of mosaic's.

Your rearranging looks so inviting. And it looks like plenty of space yet for your Art Quilters to set down and have lunch.

Beautiful quilt...I love the colours and the texture the quilting give it.

Jeannette said...

Your wall looks like a patchwork quilt too!

Wow! It is gorgeous. I like your gallery wall, too. Inspiration in the sewing room is a good thing.

Amazing quilt--the composition and colors work so well together. Very painterly.
best, nadia

I've been following your blog for a while and love (almost) everything you do. But this is particularly nice - so interesting and modern and arty - thanks for sharing.

I'm glad Gene asked about that painting. I was curious too. Your hand dyed quilt looks fantastic.

I have been watching you move your fabrics and am in awe. Not only do the fabrics look so much tidier than I'd even attempt but you are still sewing up so much at the same time.
I bow to you and your achievements.
