I’m working on another big quilty thing, but made this quick lil shirt. It’s an underwater theme.

Monster Quilt

Sep 1st, 2010

I’ve taken up embroidery in a very enthusiastic yet clumsy way. Here this my first completed project! It’s a small quilt with a monster theme. Fun with a LOT of missteps, but I’m learning.

It was pleasant to work in an unfamiliar medium with some real inherent limitations. And, oddly enough, it was kind of nice to produce something that must be seen in person to be fully appreciated. STILL! How to get a great photos of embroidered quilts… ?! It’s tough! If you have experience on such matters, let me know.

Sometimes when the duvet is all messed up it can be hard to find this little man, which is oddly delightful. He’s off having an adventure.
