I have done a bit of piecing though. You may have noticed the button in my sidebar for "a-DRESS-ing the Situation." This is a challenge of sorts that was the bright idea of Monica over at girl gone thread wild. The purpose of the challenge is to shine more light on the unresolved murders of young women in northern Mexico. You can read more about the situation here (among other places). I have a tendency to be very literal in my interpretation of things so it's no surprise that I pieced the shape of a traditional Mexican dress.
That was a few days ago. Yesterday I had quite the conversation with my Inner Perfectionist in my journal. As a result I was able to do some embroidery on the dress with both cotton floss and beads.
I'm rather pleased with the way it has turned out. You're not seeing the final product yet. Once I get the binding in place I'll show you how I quilted it. This is the same size as the Priority Quilts I've made for the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative, 9" x 12".
