Girl Behind the Mask is Finished

I have finally finished my quilt and I am in the process of having it photographed before sending it off to the Festival of Quilts competition. What a relief ! I have learnt quite a lot about quilting and myself. It has been an emotional roller coaster and I am glad I went for the ride. I know now that when I decide to attempt another quilt it will certainly be a lot easier. My Bernina has been a very reliable friend.

In addition to finishing my quilt, I have put up and taken down an exhibition of work done by children I teach. I have also this week been working with textile artist Ricky Outis to develop designs for costumes which will be made during the summer as part of a arts project for children. This was great fun and a welcomed break from the quilt, we had a good laugh together.

Of course quite a lot has been sacrificed because I chose to spend my time in the studio, now there is lots of catching up to do.

Hi Sandra, I've been reading your blog now for a few weeks/months but didn't know you had finished that fascinating quilt until I read it at Kyra's blog. Congratulations on the completion and for the showing in FoQ. Will you be attending the festival?
