Details For the Pearl S. Buck Quilt

I'm getting closer and closer to finishing my Herstory quilt - here's a picture of some free motion stitching and an applique of a Chinese field worker on silk organza. I screen printed it on with a thermofax I had made from my art by Lyric Montgomery in NC. Next, the plan is to see what hand stitching I can strategically add, and sew on beads of different types to make the whole thing come into focus. My goal is to tell the story and to make this piece work on different levels as a piece of art for the book and the traveling show.
