Goddess

Today, I've actually finished something - ok, it's not bound but let's not get picky. I have free motion quilted my first piece since breaking my ankle 9 weeks ago. This is called "Goddess" after the womanly goddess shapes. You may be able to see that the word goddess is sewn in a number of places on it. The big goddess shape in the foreground has this lovely spiral in it, indicating the womb and a child, so I echoed that in the overall quilting design. I have used some of the threads given to me by Marion. The orange bit outlined top right is NOT a thong, it kinda looked like reproductive organs, so a very deep meaningful metaphorical piece this!

Great piece, Shirley. I didn't even see the "thong" until you pointed it out :-)

I just love the Goddess quilt Shirley, the colours and the spirals particularly appeal to me.
