whew, and just under the wire as well!
I don’t know what it is about a deadline…I always seem to see just how close I can get, I must work better under pressure or at least THINK I work better under pressure.
Anyways, Jabberwocky is done and hanging in the gallery, complete with hand mirror beside it for “reading” . It ended up being entirely hand quilted, not something I would recommend when you are fighting a deadline.
We had a great time at the opening last night and I was really pleased to see visitors using the mirror to read the poem!
Here’s a detail of the finished quilt. All the images I took last night in the gallery seem to have a yellowish cast on them ( sorry about that!) I will take some more images of the quilt when it comes home and you can see the colours a bit better.
Through the Looking Glass is on at the Seymour Art Gallery in Deep Cove, North Vancouver till the 18th of September. If you are in the area Seymour is a lovely little gallery in a beautiful place! well worth a visit.
I seem to be taking longer and longer between posts these days, no excuses but finishing quilts and attending openings has slowed me down. So has this!
Bart had to have a little surgery on Friday and of course my world revolves around him! We spent the long weekend at home recovering (both of us) and he is well and truly on the mend. He will be so thrilled tomorrow when the “cone of shame” comes off.
Bye for now, Catherine
I love the quil (have since I saw it on DMTV!)
Poor Bart – they hate those cones.
Fantastic to see it finished and people interacting with it. Oh dear Bart does look sorry for himself, they certainly know how to make you feel bad with those expressive eyes.
looks beautiful – does it come with a ceiling mounted mirror?
This is a beautiful and original quilt Catherine. I loved to see “the making of…”at DMtv. Thanks for sharing.
