Keeping Watch

I have finished my latest project.

Keeping Watch

I  described in a previous post (here) how I prepared the pattern from an old photograph.

I dyed the pale green fabric using inks because I couldn’t find the fabric I was sure I had bought to use in this project. (I found the fabric a minute after I finished the piece.)

The hair and background were quilted using free motion embroidery.

  1. Excellent job, as usual, Nancy. Can’t wait to see it at ADU’s ‘Show & Tell.’
