|From Edge 2 Edge Art Quilts||
Here is my current (and VERY OLD) slow quilting project. I thought I had lost the thread I was using to quilt but joy of joy I found it behind a box. I have decided that I will be working on this during TV viewing and other times when I just don't want (or am unable) to sew on the machine.
I love Corticelli thread for hand quilting but unfortunately they are no longer in business. The good news is that I still have a pretty good supply of it in various colors AND I don't do that much hand quilting anymore. These are my absolute favorite needles. When I found them I bought bunches and have had them for a long time (as you can see by the price). I love the fact that I can put 5 or so stitches on them and they don't bend or break.
I have completed and submitted my piece for the SAQA Spotlight auction fundraiser. I call my piece Windswept. My piece is hand painted unprimed canvas with hand colored laces and cheesecloth. It also features batiks and commercial fabrics. It is machine quilted.
This auction works like a regular auction (highest bidder wins) and you don't have to be a SAQA member to bid on any of the fabulous piece of art. Head on over to the SAQA Spotlight auction website and start choosing your favorite pieces now!
SAQA Spotlight Auction pieces are all 6" x 8" (landscape or portrait) but they will arrive matted and ready for framing. The visible area will be a little smaller. This is my piece and shows the approximate area.
