12th finish for 2015 - Delivered and Blimps

The quilt has been delivered to the venue. Whew! I worked on it up until the last minute. Friday and Saturday I stitched and stitched. This piece was improve pieced using rock/metal t-shirts. I first machine quilted it and then spent about 100 hours hand embroidering it.
Here is the photographer's photo. The quilt turned out 70" x 70". I think I will make this my header picture. Opening night is September 5. I met another artist with a quilt at the photo shoot. We talked and talked! We exchanged info and hopefully we can get together to talk more.

Here are the shirts I did outlining on this past weekend.

Then I did the emblishments including some crosses I found at a craft store, patches, and guitar pics.


The blimps were out and about on Friday. They were flying around the jobsite where I work for about a half hour.

Now I need to regroup and figure out what the next project will be.

Congratulations! All that hand stitching really paid off. Where will this quilt go after the exhibit? Will you keep this one?

Wow, Patty, your quilt is fantastic! I love the additions of the picks, etc. (how'd you do that, anyway?). Your own magnum opus!

LOL. the blimps were just checking on you! Seems like they really were interested in this finish!

Wow, Patty. I love your machine embroidery on the different blocks. It add a nice touch without overpowering (or being overpowered by) the black. And the picks are a fabulous addition. I assume you added them with embroidery, too, kind of like Indian mirrors. Great job. Thanks for linking up with AHIQ.

Wow - this is great. I have two large sons who would leap on it in a moment. I especially like the way you use embroidery on the quilt. Thanks for sharing it at AHIQ.
