Moving on to the next thing,(there's always a next thing!) which is a quilt for Stretching Art & Tradition 22. Our theme this year is "When One Door Closes". My design is partly inspired by some of the lyrics in the Rolling Stones song, "Paint It Black." The quilt, entitled "Doors Unopened" is going to be 24"x 36"h. The quilts travel as a group between many of the Mancuso quilt shows in the US.
I started off by doing some background quilting before adding the other elements via appliqué. I think I might actually use batting behind the elements to have them stand out from the quilted surface even more. Not exactly trapunto, more flat than that.
