PINE NEEDLE - COMPLETED DECONSTRUCTED SCREEN PRINTED PROJECT

Back at the end of February, I blogged/complained during the making of this quilt.  If so moved....you can click here and again here to see those posts.

After the stand off I experienced when it came to quilting the screen printed sections, those poorly executed stitches were removed.  AND.... I settled in for many peaceful evenings hand embroidering the pine needle images.  The right decision in my humble opinion.

 PINE NEEDLES  41" X 30.25"
Artist deconstructed screen printed images, machine pieced and quilted, hand embroidered.

I really like the way you divided up each block, that little square of green in each one adds so much.

So much right about this design, imho. The more I look, the more I see what is making this work so well. And with my structured sensibilities, it is so pleasing - the Frank Lloyd Wright framing of the natural world beyond.
