Kimono III, Ready to Quilt

I was quite put off by this, but with the encouragement of my readers I kept at it and I am liking it now. Here isĀ  detail:

If I feel better, I will quilt it tomorrow. I am auditioning thread.

This book was just released. I received my copy today. These are quilts inspired by Obama.

The group quilt done by the Fiber Artists for Obama is in the book.

Here is a detail showing my block which has 4 screen prints of Obama (second down on the right). The quilts are currently traveling around to various venues.

I am lumbering through the day coping with whatever it is that is ailing me. I am hoping it is a virus that will leave soon. I am going to go to bed early again.

    I’m so sorry you’re still down, sweetie. Hope it gets better in time for you to enjoy Easter weekend. (I’d offer to host the board meeting on Monday, but that’s D-day — demolition — in our bathroom remodel.

    Love this kimono. I hope you are feeling better. Do you have the eye mask that you keep in the fridge and then pop on for a bit? I can’t remeber where I got mine, but it does help reduce the swollen sinuses. Take care and have a glorious weekend.
