    Girl Sewing Wall Hanging

    I just finished this wall hanging (about 24x30). I found the pattern on Lori Kennedy's "The Inbox Jaunt" but the designer is Peggy Aare Page. It is paper pieced by me and magically quilted by Tracey Fisher. I love the wall paper, curly hair and sleeve detailing as well as the swirly skirt. Bellingham WA May 2016.

    Shows what teamwork can really do. A true lesson in synergy where the sum of one plus one is greater than two. A tough concept for the math wiz that I am. Great Job!!!!!

    Beautiful interpretation of that classic piece of artwork that Lori had on her Saturday series. I really enjoy her site. And I like the presentation that you made with the collaboration of the quilter. It is just beautiful in every way. Enjoy.

    This is a very interesting piece and I'll bet it captures everyone's attention as it hangs on a wall. It's simple but very striking. And the quilting just takes it to a whole other level. Really like it and you and the quilter did a great job on it.

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Beautiful piece. When I first seen it, it so reminded me of a board member here, MaryKatherine, her name just popped in my head. I think she had an icon picture similar to your wall-hanging

    Amazing piecing and quilting. Thank you for the wonderful photos to see the details. I love the fabric selection you used. Imagine how different the sewing lady would look using loud, bright fabrics. Now I am tempted to put this on my bucket list.
