First Finished Quilt of 2022

After weeks of thinking of beads, looking at beads, and sewing on beads, I’ve finished Rhapsody In Blue. I made it to experiment with a forest of blue-trunked trees. I finished it to submit to a Studio Arts Quilt Associates show called “Haven.” This is all commercial fabric and beads. I made the side edges wavy on purpose to seem more organic, and the fringes at the bottom represent tree roots. While I recognize the value of imagination in getting projects started, there’s nothing like a deadline to get them finished. Here’s hoping we all meet our deadlines this year!

Luck and wisdom!
