The pieced Celtic Cross art quilt I've been working on for the past 6 months is almost done!
The picture above is a vintage handkerchief in an embroidery hoop - a work in progress still! I've added vintage lace in a Celtic loop design that mimics the design on my cross, and I'm in the process of hand beading it. This will be tacked on to the finished cross - right in the the center.
Here is a photo of the inspiration (left) and the work in progress cross (right).
Next week I'll be posting the final finished piece. I have an appointment next week with a professional fine art photographer to photograph this - so I have a deadline to meet!
Since the whole thing is white on white, it is very difficult to photograph properly. Each time I try, the color turns creamy or gray... or some other mushy color. So I'm hoping a professional photographer with the proper lighting will know how to handle this. A a professional photo is critical since I am entering this in a big competition.
More on all this next week! Stay tuned.
Here is my previous post on this particular journey - from Nov 2014.
Linking up with Off the Wall Friday.
