I finished the first block of Harriet Powers' Pictorial Quilt. I "cheated", I just couldn't make progress on those last four stars and the points, so I fused them. I'm a traditional applique person, needle turn, always, but after seeing the stars and stitching a tiny whip stitch to the edges, may have to change my views about fusing.
Anyway, while on Pinterest, my visual quilt book, found a link
to a quilter that I had never heard of, Peggie Hartwell. She has stitched a wonderful quilt called Ode to Harriet Powers. Here's the link,
And another link, a blog, sad to say it no longer exists since the posts are from 2010. A post regarding Harriet Powers and "Identity". As in, "when you express yourself or create art, do you think the end result says something about your identity?" So do you make quilts to express your identity?
