Whisper

Some quilts are just whispering,

inviting you in to hear their stories.

The Whatever quilt is a rather personal journey,

soft spoken and bold.

Text printed onto ExtravOrganza silk organza sheets on a backdrop of soft orange dots to be stitched onto the almost finished quilt. I have left them until now so that they may fray and disintegrate simply by getting handled.

They have been pinned, glued and stitched down with sheer thread. The whispers should be safe now.

Hear that sound? That’s me exhaling. Progress, finally!
