I finished this piece today, my first 16x12" collage-inspired quilt, called Morning Prayer. This is the format I'll be using for my personal twice-monthly challenges next year, and this is also the first piece that completely satisfies my stated requirements for my SAQA vision quilts -- based on a collage of mine, and 16x12." The original collage is just below.
The foundation fabric for the piece is an old linen damask napkin, dyed at least once and discharged. I never totally liked the piece but it wasn't bad enough to do anything else to, so it sat in my blue/purple stack waiting for just this moment to be used. The vertical and horizontal bars are two of my favorite deconstructed screen prints, the fabric with white in it was a glue screen print, and the alter piece in the middle of that started out as a reject for a textile collage postcard!
I totally enjoyed making this piece -- I used some different, for me, quilting lines, and the new free motion foot worked like a charm!
We went to a wonderful Thanksgiving potluck here at the mobile home park tonight, and I can't remember having had such a delicious turkey supper before! It was really awesome. Unfortunately, I ate too much! But oh well, it was worth it!
