Zinc Quilt Detail

Here is a detail of the finished piece.  The zinc pieces are curved just a bit.  I am going to have to keep the full images under wraps until the exhibition opens in the spring.  I am happy to report that I finished this just under the wire on the timeline and it has already joined the other pieces in the Radical Elements Exhibition at the SAQA shipping center!

The finished size is 22 wide x 36 high.

What a wonderful, innovative piece this is! What are the final dimensions? And did you find it difficult to stitch around the zinc pieces?

Stunning and intriguing! I've enjoyed your process posts on this a lot. Look forward to seeing the full piece when you're free to show it here.

The free motion stitching around the zinc was slightly difficult, as the metal kept hanging up on the edge of my machine bed and I had to really be on top of it every second. I worked at it gradually over several days so as not to put too much wear and tear on my shoulders and wrists!

Finished size is 22 x 36, as specifically required for all pieces in this exhibition.
