3 small works
Three small works I've recently completed. Well, not entirely completed. The first is quilted and the edges have been finished with a facing: the last two are small tops.
The last two are musings on the word "ladder." The first a more literal treatment, the second very abstract.
The first quilt was the result of a challenge in one of my bees. We each pulled three crayons out of a bag. I pulled red-orange, fuchsia and red-violet. Here they are:
I don't know how I managed to pull three colors out that I like so much. I swear I didn't look! I was afraid I was going to pull out something like flesh, always my least favorite color in the Crayola box. The quilt would not have been nearly as fun to make!
