Many years ago while vending at a quilt show in San Francisco I had the pleasure of meeting Leora Raikin and being introduced to African Folklore Embroidery. Over the years I’ve gotten to know Leora and have developed a love for her embroidery designs and bright, wonderful threads. This is a piece that I’ve completed although it still qualifies as a UFO since it needs to be made it into a pillow, wall hanging or something or other.
In person the colors are even more vibrant.
If you look closely you can see I also used a few crystal.
Leora will be speaking at my guild, Quilters by the Sea, tomorrow night February 10, 2011 and then teaching a workshop on Saturday. If you live in Southern California and would like to attend, visit the guild website for more information.
