2013 has been a challenging year so far. We laid another of the greatest generation to rest this past week, my mother-in-law, after a full 90 years. In the restorative sewing frenzy that followed, I finished my entry in a recent quilt challenge, for my Beatles’ song of choice, “Honey Pie”! Everyone participating chose one of their songs to illustrate in a 24″ x 24″ fiber art piece. The quilts will be exhibited in several venues.
I struggled a while with how to show a pie of honey, then at my husband’s suggestion, went instead with pi! I’m pleased with the way it came out. I used several techniques: fused applique, paint stick texture plates, couching, and stamping with a hand carved stamp.
