digitalis quilt

At last my digitalis quilt is finished! When I was writing down the evaluation of this triptych for Linda and Laura I came to a total number of hours I spend on this piece of 84!! Most of it was used for making the pieced background. It was a lot of work but I am happy with the result.
It was the first time that I made a triptych and one of the practical issues I stumbled upon is that with a piece like this you have to make a label for each panel. Just to be certain that when it is at a show that they hang it properly I mentioned on each label whether the panel should be at the left, center or right side. Most of the time I do not create my art with a specific show in the back of my mind, but I am thinking of sending this piece to coming year's Festival of Quilts.

Beautiful! Did you use any fabric from Carol's class, or was it made before then? Well done!

Lovely. The 3D effect for the "gloves" is brilliant, and the diverse quilting motifs are charming. Look forward to seeing this at FOQ!
