Spirit of the Kiva Revived
I decided that I needed to let my eyes rest and haven't been working on the thread painting since the surgery. However, I wanted to get some other things done. This piece was started about two years ago. I started the quilting and had about 2/3 of the large design done when I realized that it was going wonky on me. Because I have the straight lines of the boarder I was afraid that I wouldn't be able to get everything to look straight.
I decided to take the photo printed on fabric out, redo the printing and reinsert it in the boarders. I started sewing the boarders on today. Because the printed fabric area was larger that the first one I had to do some trimming. It was quite confusing for a while. I'm used to making the boarders match the center piece. This time I had to make the center match the boarders. You understood that didn't you? I had to call in reinforcements, my husband, to help. We finally figured it out and I hope to get the other two sides sewn tomorrow.
