Stitching finished - next step is to paint
The trickiest part of the sewing on this quilt, Life 4, was the quilt within the quilt, you see pictured in the photo on the right.
What you can see stitched, is Life 2, which is draped over my sewing extension table and over my lady's knees. Getting the flow of curves right to show this was tricky and I put it off until last as I wasn't sure quite how to tackle it. I think it does look as if it's got movement, which is the wonderous thing about the "washboard" free machining - it can be used to show direction very effectively. I love it. It's my fave pattern.
