Soooooo close now!

Well, I’ve been working steadily for weeks now on a “literature review quilt” as a portion of my literature review comprehensive exam, and I am nearing the final steps. As you can see here, I have a “quilt sandwich”. I have finished piecing together the blocks of the top quilt and added all of the cream-on-cream pieces that surround the blocks (each block is composed of images related to a specific components of my exam response). I purchased the whitest of battings available to give distinction to the subtle tones of cream on top and have cut the batting to size. Finally here, you will see that, after much debating over metaphors, I have selected a light pink for the backing fabric, cut it to size and have pined all three layers of the “sandwich” together – ready to quilt.

  1. The transferring of images onto cloth was just the beginning, then the “miles” of sewing. Results in a fabulous piece of Art (not to mention, a sewing machine that refuses to sew!)7
