Fourth Piece for Take It Further Challenge

Finally, I have finished my fourth piece for the Challenge. The challenge was to pick someone we admire to inspire our piece. I chose Jean Littlejohn and her piece in which she uses the Embellisher. I did the first piece so quickly, I felt guilty and made a second piece. Then Sharon posted a link to some vintage samplers. I saw one I wanted to copy and ended up doing two more. Now I think I can make a wall hanging of the four pieces. Not sure how yet, but I'm thinking of a large piece of black felt for the background. I hope to get to that before the February challenge starts.

Well, here's the finished quilt. I just have to add another layer of black felt, embroider the edges together, and hang it. I'm going to miss working on this piece.

All four of your pieces are wonderful. I'm still trying to get my one finished before the end of the month and here you have four :0

They came out really nice and they would look great framed together. I didn't get my January TIF done but I have finished February.

Really like the vintage feel of these and the kantha style quilting on one of the others. The compositions are really nicely balanced and have a feeling of flow about them. Am toying with the idea of signing up to the challenge.
