The first meditation panel is fondly named "earth ark" to emphasize the boat and rainbow shapes witihin it. It has been on the quilting frame since early May and we have 'rolled' it three times, bringing the center within reach. This past week I made some decisions about the quilting designs in the large crescent shape and in the knot-dotted silk squares. There are a few leaves visible in the weave of the damask in the crescent so I traced those and then added more of the same shape. The squares will be quilted with embroidery floss in a chain stitch horizontal line. Every Thursday, the project is open to the communitiy, and here is a photo of yesterday's participants at work.
And here are their faces. From left to right, Marian, Rita, Judy, Wendy, Heather H, Heather T, Sylvia, my empty chair, Anita, and Cornelia. Thanks for coming out.
