African colorwash.....portrait...

I'm down to the final 2 quilts.  This one, African Colorwash is 20" x 23.75".  I will also be sending a couple of the small Crooked Cobblestone pieces so there will be a variety of size and price.
I sewed a dark purple binding on the larger colorwash piece which I finished quilting yesterday morning.  I have about 1/4 of the hand sewing done.  I need to ship the quilts today.  I usually do a dry run on the packing so I know how many I can get into a box but this time I'm just down to the wire on all of it.  I'll find out how many fit when I get this binding and the final 2 labels sewn on.

Wow, how much you've accomplished! I couldn't handle the last minute stress. Tomorrow, hopefully you can relax. I love the African Colorwash!

Your work is so beautiful. Are you sending your quilts to Charlotte? Are you going with them?

Mary said...

Your African colorwash truly is exuberant. Good luck on getting everything shipped.

The African color wash is more intense than your usual color wash work. I think it adds a new dimension to your art.

Whew! You're going to need a vacation after this big finishing push!

How many pieces will you have in the show? Of course I love the Aferican Colorwash. You have so many different colors than what I have in my stash and I enjoy seeing what I don't have! Best of luck with the show and I hope you can post some pictures once the show is hung.

Are you going to get to go to NC this time for your show and possibly to teach? I know you had a great time last Spring.

You have put the rhythm of the country into your African Colorwash.

Much fun for me, as I am scrolling back to see the posts of this past week.

How much of your grey/white dotted fabric did you buy? It is such a grand piece to combine with your fabrics. I will be looking for a piece like that in the future.
