About Face

I finished About Face and sent it off on Wednesday to Festival of Quilts. It is always a surprise to me how messy my studio becomes when I am juggling workshops and creating my own work. It has now been tidied and I am trying to get my incomplete work all done. Next year I will make a smaller quilt, it it just too difficult working on a large scale with limited space and without a long arm quilting machine.
Last month I attended the most interesting talk at the about Afro combs, I took two of my daughters Melissa and Selena. It was really fascinating and we were totally amazed by the information about the number of teeth and their sizes  to the different handles, their history and materials used to make them. I am eager to find out more.
I will now spend my evening catching up on reading the  blogs I follow.

Thank you for your comment, Marion. I hope you are not dissapointed, I always worry that it will not look as I hoped when it is placed in another environment. I still have not gone to FOQ, maybe tomorrow.

It looked great at the FOQ. I can see from your picture that you tested your hanging mechanism beforehand...I'll be doing that in future!
