Hope - Project Quilting

"Hope," art is 2.5" x 4" in a 5" x 7" frame, made by Pam Geisel for Project Quilting, Season 8, Challenge 1: Eight is Great, Jan. 2017 in Yellow Springs, Ohio

Challenge recap for "Eight is Great":

Since this is the eighth year for Project Quilting, your inspiration for this challenge is eight.

I had a lot of ideas for this project, so many that I had difficulty deciding which one to do. So I decided to look through my fabric stash and let it tell me. I dug into my hand-dyed fabrics and they wanted to be an flower with eight petals. I was also inspired by the local weather.


This is the view out my studio window today. Which is why I named this piece "Hope."


It is raw-edge applique with micro stippling in the green background with a variegated thread.
