Customer Work - Sue Kelly
I didn't get as much quilting done yesterday as I wanted. Anne and I hung out for a while in the afternoon and I only got one more border section done on the quilt last night. I love ruler work but I'm slow at it because it inflames some nerve problem (or something) in my left wrist. I can't do it for more than an hour at a time. I'm hoping to get the border done this weekend working in 3 sessions; one for each of the remaining border segments.
Fortunately I received an email from a customer yesterday so I'm excited to have a second piece to share this week.
Sue Kelly of Sebastopol, CA made the piece on the left inspired by the image on the right. It's 12" x 17". She made this in a class called Broken Color by Denise Oyama Miller. Denise teaches mainly on the West Coast, but based on the art in her gallery, a class with her would be awesome if yo have the opportunity.
The best part about Sue's piece (for me) is that she used some of the fabrics that she won in my March drawing. I think the hand dyed textures really add to the stained glass look of the piece and they were free!
The good news for all of my readers is that another of my week-long giveaways is coming up in August. I'm feeling a big clean-out coming on and you will get the benefit.

Sue's stained glass inspired piece is delightful. The hand dyed fabrics really help with creating the illusion.
