Finished!






well.. almost except for the binding in this last shot.... but my "binder"( Hi Mom!) has since reported it being completed...
Sometimes when working on a single project for an extended period of time ( it's been a year) it is hard to get a clear perspective . In this case the ( almost) finished project left me feeling a bit wanting. I was stressing it and second guessing myself ( unusual because 95% of the time the quilt top has been created by the client.....this was that 5% where is was all my design but still dictated by the scarves themselves) Then my Mom suggested we put it on the bed. That made ALL the difference.
Now I am confident that whichever residence( Texas or Indiana) it calls home , will be just the right place for it to be viewed used and enjoyed!
I learned a LOT about working with silk from this project,mostly that it has a mind of its own. I did enjoy the challenge of taking these "ruined" scarves and creating a new useful and ( hopefully) aesthetically pleasing piece that will remind the owner of the memories and events each scarf signifies.
