Jack in the Pulpit -- Work in Progress, Update 5
As I hope you can see from the previous posts, there is a LOT of work that goes into one of my projects before I reach the point of actually designing and constructing it. I like to have all of my elements--the prints of all types, and the patchworked fabrics--ready before I start putting everything together. Ideally, I will clear my schedule and take a day or two for full immersion into the construction. I don’t generally finish in those immersion days, but it’s enough for me to see where it is I am headed.
Jack in the Pulpit is now a finished top. It measures out at roughly five feet by six feet. Here’s a few glimpses of how the piecing went. I am excited by how well it all came together! It still needs to be layered, quilted, and finished. I have a lot going on right now so it has joined the queue.
Thanks for following along up to this point, and stay tuned for further updates.
