About My Project:

I know my entry isn't the most innovative, but hear me out! Each of the female patterns used represents an aspect of me, pulled together by the quote 'Well-behave women rarely make history'. The sailor represents my love of water and my work on cruise ships. The showgirl represents that I work in theater and the cowgirl represents my hard working side. This panel is the inspiration for a 'Feminist Statement' embroidered quilt and will be the centrepiece surrounded by further embroidery.
