Energy Sneak Peek
A top is kind of like a blank sheet of paper waiting for a drawing. There are so many possibilities. The color is there but there are no lines to define the color and space. Trying to decide what to quilt can be daunting. I decided to go with closely spaced lines. Keep in mind that the strips in the photo are only two inches wide so those lines are pretty close together. I like the random look of unevenly spaced lines as I think it adds more interest. I wanted to create some energy in the orange so I went with my allover swirl with long flowing spikes coming form them like little suns. I really enjoyed the process of quilting this little piece. The finished quilt is about 24x48 and meant as wall art. I put on the binding yesterday and now just need to hand stitich that in place, add a hanging sleeve and a label. Hopefully I will have that done quickly as would love to hang this up where I can enjoy it.
