I had great fun making this piece for the "A Show of Hands" exhibit coming up at the International Quilt Festival in November. These touchable quilts will be hung from the ceiling, so both the front and back will show. At the end of the Festival, all the pieces will become part of the permanent collection of Creative Spirit Center in Midland, Michigan. My own and my beau's hand were the templates. I fused them to muslin with Timtex, used Pigma pens to document the story of our meeting, and then did the embroidery and binding by hand. It's an irregular (two-hand) shape, and the largest dimensions are 10.5 x 14 inches.
