On A Good Day

Image

Here’s my newest completed piece, “On A Good Day.” It measures 48×12 inches and was sewn entirely by hand. It’s pieced, appliqued, embroidered, couched and quilted. Texture, value and repetition were important to me when in the design stages.

This quilt began as a challenge in a quilting group. Each artist is making a piece of this size using the same red fabric. The quilts can then both be displayed as a group and stand individually. I think I’m the first one completely finished, but I’ll let you know if these ever go to a show or exhibit.

I leave you with a photo of my fuzzy helper, Milo. He likes to lay on my pillow and hug my arm while I’m doing handwork. Very cute.

    Visiting from Tuesday Archives (on Thursday–a little slow I am). An interesting challenge–not the easiest size to design for, but you made a good one! (Was Target in your mind?)

      🙂 I can see Target in the red circles. I was going for ripples. Still, one thing about art is that it’s open to interpretation. What you bring to it as a viewer shapes your experience of it.
