Catherine Whall Smith . . . is sharing her work in progress

My last post shared the piece “Here’s Hillary” that is presently on my design wall.  I usually work on two or more styrofoam panels that are roughly 7 feet high by 4 feet wide.  Placing two side by side gives me 8 feet of continuous space to arrange my fabrics.  It was my lucky day when I found some of my original pattern pieces from “Where’s Hillary” made in 2008. I will use them for this new piece.  As you can see the cardboard pattern is actually cut from a pizza box.

Below left are some of the fabrics that are making the “final cut”.  The photo on the right shows the selvage edge indicating the names of a few of those fabrics. “Tea for Two” has spoon images; “Because of the Brave” has many shades of blue in a camouflage pattern;  and “Blue bird” is a fabric made in Japan.img_4267img_4271

 

 

 

 

Here is a view of how that “red lip” fabric might look surrounded with a blue arch. img_4260Lots to consider and what message will this quilt deliver. I will keep you posted.

If you have been following the news, Hillary Clinton was recently diagnosed with a small right middle lobe pneumonia. I think the recommended treatment is antibiotics, liquids, and bed rest. Maybe she needs a quilt for that bed rest – I better get busy! Remember I hand quilt all of my art – this could take some time.
