I see it first. I see shapes in fabric or paper. My very good friend gives me pieces of fabric and I saw in this piece of lace a body shape. It morphed into this quilt. Body image, fraught with difficulties, which gave rise to the strip in the middle: pas de panique/don't panic.

Sometimes the vision works, sometimes it doesn't. I think this time it worked. Try as I might I couldn't get the photo right. The sage background comes out too grey.


Now I'm tackling another large piece, one that I've been planning in my head for a long time. Still a work in progress as it is being hand-stitched.

  1. It looks perfect! (and yes, the green is much more greener in person)(please excuse my poor grammar)And thank you so much for the springtime tea -- and for my lovely bunny -- she slept with me last night :)

  2. Looks like you and I worked on something a little similar today. Your project runway is still in my head from Silver Bella. I am now making those little dresses into pillows. Some hand sewing and some on the machine. Thanks.
