Stupendous Stitching

I worked keenly to get this small quilt finished this week.  I had been thinking I would put it in the quilt show at the School House in St. Jacobs later this month.  I have rethought that because it is based on a workshop, Stupendous Stitching, from Carol Ann Waugh that I took online.  Although I think I did some interesting things with this piece it isn't original.  I used my own hand dyed silk and that was a complete pleasure.  I also added beading and silk ribbon embroidery.  It is intentionally not truly square. I think I pushed the boundaries of the workshop to make this uniquely mine but still is a derivative of Carol Ann's work.

I like the stitches you have added to that gorgeous piece of fabric!

Stupendous stitching, indeed! Your quilt is beautiful. The silk you dyed is lovely and the beads and stitching that you imagined add beautiful interest. I think your quilt should be entered into a show....just to put a smile on the faces of those who gaze upon it.

Do the rules of the show state it has to be 100% your original design and work?
Whatever you do, you have finished a beautiful piece of work, and I think it is full of YOU.

I think it is fabulous and quite original with inspiration from Carol Ann... I think folks would love to see it in person!
