I'm having difficulty with the 'composition' link on my blog…. its really frustrating and takes ages to get a blog published. I think it must be a problem with the workings of Typepad.
I've been up in the wee hours working on the quilting of this piece. I probably have about another 20 hours of quilting to do before the quilt is finished.
I'm going to have a large photographic print made of it similar to the Irish Woman. so that I have a copy after it leaves my studio.
I haven't finished the black on the quilt. So that's all the body parts and some of the quilting….Its fascinating using the sweet 16 because I was able to quilt and applique all the 'green' for instance and then go to the red without the quilt puckering.
Its very different to quilting on an ordinary machine.
A had a small hold up… the lights have gone on the sweet 16 so I need to pull it all apart and take it to the dealer.. Its a jolly nuisance when I'm in the middle of a project. So I've decided to use an external set of lights until it's finished then Keith can take it down when I'm traveling.
I'm now using a size 12 needles and I'm a happy chappy… I love it. Each day I grow in confidence on the machine.
