Progress Towards Finishing

How does one know when a quilt is finished?  Sometimes the quilts just say - hey, I'm done.  Other times I pin them up on my design wall in my studio and live with them for a bit.  I think this one is finished.  I think.

I won't take the official photograph until I know for sure.  This quilt is heavily hand quilted.  It incorporates a lot of skills that I've picked up since childhood.   In fact the quilt is all about time which I will have to incorporate into the title.

Next is a in progress quilt.  I sketched this one out on a whim, stitched the resist thread and threw it into the vat.  It is called Kind Eye and I think it has a home waiting for it.

Today I'm spending some time caring for my indigo vat and hopefully I'll be back to dyeing.  I have some things waiting for a swim and some of them are on deadlines.

Linking up once again with Nina Marie's Off the Wall Friday


  1. These seems to be the Friday for indigo vats! This is great, I have a vat planned for the next few weeks when I can work outside.

    1. Great! My vat lives in my basement studio, but it may join me on the patio a few months.

  2. Oooh! I love the stitched and dyed eye! I've used the technique to dye circles, but never thought about doing anything more realistic. I love the effect!

  3. More Indigo. I really like the mysterious look of the eye. Good job.
