Well, this was “the one” that started as a bit of a confidence booster for me. I knew I needed to challenge myself to create my own, original quilt… “from my own mind” so-to-speak… something…anything! So I began with a whole cloth – a batik – in earthtone colors, and just began experimenting with couching, bobbin play, paintstiks, metal leaf and a few blocks of leftover patchwork. It took me all summer – the summer of 2009. It was my first try at a curvy binding, too. I was absolutely THRILLED to have it accepted into an Exhibition at Paris Gibson Square Museum of Art here in Great Falls that same fall.
