Here is today's new piece. Didn't think I'd get 'er done, but here she is. Better late, than really late.
As I drove home from teaching this evening in Colorado Springs I pretty much decided that I was going to play with high contrasts for this piece. So when I got home, I grabbed all of the solid white and solid black fabric that I had on hand in my itty bitty home studio and threw them on top of the last piece of batting that I have at home which happened to be red, so I went with red thread for the quilting to add even more contrasts.
I jumped right in and stitched swirls of various sizes on the white and straight lines on the black. Then I added circles on the larger sections of batting that weren't covered up by fabric. The piece wasn't as energetic as I had hoped for so I threw the red square on there and stitched it with black thread and it added that final tasty bit of energy that the piece needed.
Who says I can't make a pretty good piece in about a half hour?
Till tomorrow, another crazy busy day,
