Work in Progress

I am trying to complete “View from the Park”, which I plan to enter into the Tactile Architecture exhibit with the International Quilt Festival in Houston.  The due date for entries is February 20th.

What you see in the piece are flat head straight pins, which are being removed as I work in those areas.

I have wanted to make a piece for this exhibit for several years now, as I enjoy seeing the exhibition so much.  I still have to finish machine quilting and appliqueing.

If you show your work, you’ll want to check Lyric’s site regularly!
