After visiting Provence I decided to make this Memory quilt while attending a Sue Spargo class at the M.I.S.A school of the arts on Madeline Island WI. The quilt is mostly wool, lovely to work with and I added some of Sue's hand dyed velvets and silks. I also used some of my hand felted pieces in the landscape blocks. The pictures were hand appliqued and embellished with silks and beutiful Genzia threads. 'The Lavandre' block was heavily beaded and stitched using some new stitches I learned from Sue and some other stitches i had forgotten I knew!
I now have to quilt and bind the quilt. It is very heavy. I backed the quilt with a sunny yellow french provencal design fabric.
I always take my time before I summon up the courage to start the quilting process, deciding on the design and taking the plunge.
