The Traveling Day Lilies
It took me a long time to finish my art quilt, now titled The Traveling Day Lilies.
It is raw-edge appliqué stitched down with embroidery floss. I quilted it with Superior metallic thread in green and a Valdani cotton in gold. I added some miscellaneous beads to the stamens of the flowers.
Here is another detail shot.
I have entered this in the next PAQA-South quilt show to be held at the Page-Walker Arts and History Center in Cary this fall.
We have been traveling a lot. Besides our mountain cabin, we have also been to Asheville for a weekend with family and friends. Ten of us attended a concert at the Pisgah Brewing Company with Trampled By Turtles. Funny name for a group of remarkable musicians who can pick QUICK!
Here is a new picture of my little grand baby, Charlie. She is a joy. I still babysit for her twice a week and also kept her last weekend.
This past week I have been to the National Teapot exhibit in Creedmoor, NC, and also to my old quilt bee, The Whacky Ladies. More to come in future posts!
