Quilts and Other Stuff from Frances

Portugal Stairs #2


I have been working on the second in my series of stairs from Porto, Portugal.  This time it is a long set of stairs (100 in this first set and then another 114 after I turned the corner), and I decided to do it in a monochrome palette.

This afternoon, we were supposed to go to a friend’s house for the evening, but my husband started feeling poorly mid afternoon so we didn’t end up going.  Instead, we watched the University of Georgia football game (unfortunately we lost) and I did the hand Applique on this piece. 

It is amazing with these stair quilts that the perspective doesn’t appear until you put the “stair-step” side piece on and then…..WOW!!!!



This one will have even more perspective when I have done the shading, thread work and quilting…..something to look forward to doing!!


I have also been working on a charity quilt for our guild and quilting on a piece for a friend.




If you are in the US, i hope you are having an enjoyable “Labor Day” weekend!!

  1. Doing this in the monochrome has given it a kind of twilight feel. It makes me feel tired just looking up those steps. You must have felt exhausted after that, but a wonderful way to recall the event. Maggi
