My piece for the VCQ Minds Wide Open challenge progresses! These are my three practice pieces, and attempts to include the muse of Lyric Poetry, Erato. She’s sometimes shown with a wreath of roses and myrtle in her hair, thus the rose petals. (In case you can’t tell what those pink specks are!) Not sure which, or if any, of these approaches I will use. I welcome your feedback!
Here’s where the actual challenge entry stands. I’ve done some of the quilting – more still to go. The tree branches, like the muses in the practice quilts, were printed on organza prepared for inkjet printers, Extrav Organza by Jacquard. I’ll do some stitching over them – not sure yet how much.
