Crossing Edges



Yesterday I finally got back to work after doing some studio reorganization and putting away the supplies I took to the Sue Benner workshops. I felt blocked and lethargic after being away from creating, while I've been dealing with other things. So, I mustered my will and just got going. I decided to quilt this small piece and then finish the edges as Sue finishes some of hers, using satin stitch and 'tassels' on the corners. Hers look much better - but then, this is my first attempt! I'm calling this one 'Warrior' because it looks like half of a masked, horned face with sharp points - a reminder to be strong and push past our edges.

Hi Yvonne
I'm enjoying the movement in this one! I really like the impact of the circular quilting in the piece.
I'm glad you've had some time to create!
