Don't miss out on CQJP2015! - Post # 1497
When I started collecting photos of suffragettes, I also collected photos and ads for corsets.. The whole constrictive aspect of corsets versus the fight for personal freedom seemed like an obvious connection and I originally planned to make a collage of the corset photos on the lining of the suffrage quilt.
But the corset photos really needed to be a project on their own..
In 2012 my theme was my dog Morris and in 2013 my theme was cottages and I love them both. I not only like working with a theme, I try to include specific techniques to experiment with. This year I want to experiment with more floral surface embroidery than I usually use and I want to really make a dent in my stash of lace with these blocks. I want to use this project to really go through and sort out my laces.. As I think it through I will post my final goals.
