NaNo day 11/ Elizabethan Lady Quilt Finished

Writing my novel has slowed my art-making a little, but here's what I've done over the past two weeks. I something to Frieda Kahlo for inspiration, though we can all agree that her piece is more powerful (and more personal) than mine.

Here's a close-up of the lady. I used both machine and hand embroidery. This is another one of those times I think a machine that can do free motion quilting would be useful. The Tank is many things, but versatile is not one of them.

My biggest disappointment is how hard it is to see her ruff.
