I finished my Edgar Allan Poe quilt, complete with a feather pen and his manuscript of Annabell Lee. I made this as the second in my series of poet quilts featuring love poems.
As I did on William Shakespeare, I hand drew the quilt pattern and made the sections as separate quilts using fusible applique, machine, embroidery and quilting. The purple curtain is pleated and partially loose.
Next I want to do Emily Dickenson!
bicycle fabric at Hawthrone Threads that had to be in this quilt:
Also from Hawthorne is this honeycomb fabric:
The scale is larger on this honeycomb fabric also from Hawthrone Threads but it will be a great backing fabric.
I am thrilled to have received a sweet box of review books from Schiffer Publishing!
I have also been sorting and organizing my embroidery floss, for some crazy reason, which is taking much longer than I had ever expected!
