I spent much of this weekend pottering around in the sewing room / studio. This is the fabric I printed at Ankie's a few weeks ago - lots of finger painting on glass in black and gold. Stitched it all together last evening (sans shiraz) and today I finished it with a lustrous Japanese gold metallic ribbon (see close up). The quilt reminds me of the canyon at the Rio Grand in New Mexico - and so Rivers of Gold it is. A productive evening by the fire stitching down the binding and remembering the places that inspire my textile and quilt making. Time for bed, said Zebedee (apologies to The Magic Roundabout).
