Here's my contribution. It's called Indigo Horizon.
I bought that blue strip while I was at Quilt Festival in Houston this fall. I just love the color palette. The "sky" section is stamped with paint and a block wrapped with yarn.
When I contribute to a large traveling collection, I try to create a piece of art that really looks like me! When it's out in the world, I want it to be recognizable. So, I incorporated many of my favorite techniques and motifs.
Loose thread tails. You can also see the tiny halo of purple at the edge where I've painted the raw edge of all three layers of the quilt.
