So Glad You Liked It

I thought you might like some explanation of this photo. It was titled just "test" earlier. Debra commented that "I passed." Well... thank you! I always pride myself on being a good student.



I was trying some different configurations with Hello to see if it would post. Blogger and Hello are definitely fickle. Anyway, it worked. This piece is called Mossy Shadows. It's about 35 inches long and 14 inches wide. It has that wonky shape because I suck at making 90 degree angles resulting in a "square" quilt. Also because I think the shape is a bit arty.

Those are sticks and rocks sewn on. Most of them have been replaced. This quilt suffered a bit in moving from one show to another. I couldn't find a perfect stick, so now it has just rocks. But they look fine. It's now hanging at our show at The Little Dog Coffee Shop. I'd be delighted to sell it, but also am looking forward to having it hanging back home in our office.

Also, this piece is going to be published in the upcoming issue of Artella. More about that later. It should be arriving in my mailbox soon.

Like your "test" piece :) (I know that's not the title of it.) Love earth colors/earth themes always.

I like the twig element.

Nice. It looks like something I'd like to do when I'm 'therapy sewing' but somehow can never do.

Oh yes....very nice. Not "my colors" and yet it is something I would hang on my wall.....sometimes something not in my *normal* (a word RARELY associated with me) range just grabs me or, as in the case of this piece, gives me a big hug.....

Someone once suggested my quilts should be sold under the name "Paralax Error" because I can't make 90 degree corners either... call it a style and go with it!
