What's on my design wall?

On Art Digest, the question has been asked "What's on your design wall". I have two major pieces that I have been working on for a while. The first one is one of my granddaughter that I started back in April, more on that in the post below.

This piece I started working on May 26, it was my birthday present to be able to work in the studio all day. I ended up scrapping everything I did that day but I loved every minute I was working.

One would think a rotted tree stump with burls wouldn't be so hard. This piece has been the hardest piece I have ever worked on. Today, for the first time since I started the stump I have had a WHOLE DAY to work in my studio. I think I am finally getting somewhere. I plan to finish the stump in an organic shape. I will post the story behind this quilt later.


  1. This is beautiful and very moving. It will need to be well lit, though.

  2. Thanks Stacy. The piece will be well lit as I am making it for a gallery. The idea was to look and look again to make sure you were seeing what you thought you saw. Makes sense huh?

  3. Is there a face in there or is it my imagination? I lovely piece! Thanks for sharing!
