And Sew It Begins..

16"x22"

Jennifer Rodriguez of All Things Belle -

West Jordan, Utah

 

I wasn't planning on entering this week. We had a sudden death in the family and I just wasn't up for doing much. After the initial shock, and my husband traveled back to his hometown to be with his family, I found the desire to finish this project. Quilting and crochet have brought me comfort in many times of distress.

 

The title, "And Sew It Begins" refers to my pilgrimage to create a new area of mixed media specializing in crochet with quilting/sewing. Our tool prompt was the perfect inspiration. My tools of choice were : the sewing machine and scissors which are visually represented in the quilt, and my free motion sewing foot and crochet hook which were used in the quilt.

 

I was literally working up until the deadline, so unfortunately the quilt is not properly pressed. I will complete that later today and update with better pictures.

 

As always, I will blog later this week when our life is a bit calmer..
