It's been a long time

This is the unblocked BACK of my piece that I certainly hope will be completed by July 15 the reveal date for Fabrications. The word to be translated is "memory" and one would think, with as many as I have, that this would be a breeze for me. Not!

I've created what I thought would be's not. Now what? The only choice I feel I have is to take it with me to a mini-meeting of my art quilt group (there doesn't seem to be any rules about that sort of reveal) and see it I can get come constructive criticism. Desperately needed.

The other reason that it's been so long since I've posted is that the other "big" piece I'm working on is also banned from being posted on blog or internet until judged by the committee to which I will present it. I never realized what a hardship it could be to work without wide ranging interaction. It feels very much like working in a vacuum and I've come to enjoy affirmation/criticism from others whom I trust.

BTW The memory quilt will be squared up and blocked before the 15th...and finished. The last bit is a little wishful thinking, but I'll give it a go.


  1. You are farther along than I am... just can't get moving in this heat. Ideas???

  2. Wish we could help you along -- hopefully, your fiber group can offer you some support and suggestions. It IS tough working alone, sometimes.
