New Quilt Face

Sigh. After all of this work, I'm really sorry now to see that it bugs me that the mom's feet are cut off by the quilt blocks. I don't really think there is anything I can do about it. I still have the tessellation to print and add on, and I think I'm going to beef up the colors. I really hope my MFA committee thinks it's OK.

Four panels left to piece

I have 12 of the 16 blocks of the new quilt pieced and quilted. I still don't exactly know how I'm going to join them together without hand stitching the backing, but I'm happy to have the time to make this progress.
In the meantime, I'm exchanging emails with Jeanne the Carpenter about my triptych. She is very logical and detail oriented, and we're coming along well on the design. If it works, it'll make a yummy project for next year at Kendall.

OK, I'm digging way back here, really to my very first drawing class at Idaho State, and then later when I made a print of the original drawing as a lino cut. But, it was the first thing that popped into my mind when I saw today's IF prompt, Shadows. I think this must have been the beginning of my tendency to be invisible.
