Here is today's installation. It is similar to the piece that I made on the 3rd. The colors are slightly different and the quilting is really different. On this piece, I heavily quilted the red dye painted batting with a small stone stitch. The black background is quilted in a miniscule stipple to make it recede. I added the yellow, horizontal shapes in thread to heighten the visual interest. Though this one is similar to the one from the 3rd, as far as design motif, it has a very different look because of the way it is quilted.
I've become enamored with this stylized circle. We'll likely be seeing lots more of them.
p.s. I thank you Ms. Christa for your response to the last four entries - It makes me quite content to know that you are joining in on these lessons with me.
