Small Stitched Work no.1


I've begun work on some small stitched pieces... little spaces where I can just play, experiment and have fun.

This piece is just 7.5' x 7.5" and features small blocks of hand quilting and bits of assorted Japanese fabric prints that were hand appliqued onto a piece of blue cross weave cotton. Shot cotton was used for the binding.

I was at complete peace while stitching this. No preconceived expectations. No cluttered mind. Joy.

I think it looks lovely displayed on a table top


or hung on the wall.


Now available in my shop.
