pieced and ready to quilt
@ 30 x 36
I had this next piece hanging on my design wall since August 2013. It was done during a workshop with Elizabeth Barton at Arrowmont. Elizabeth graciously complimented the composition, but all I kept seeing was the big CBS eye. It began to make be a big crazy, as it stared at me day in and day out on the wall. A few days ago, as I was cleaning up some the the piles of fabric from a project, I decided that I was tired of it's glare. And I had exhausted all ideas of what to do with it. This thing had become an intrusive monster. I snatched it from the wall and hacked it up with my rotary cutter. There! I said as I tossed the pieces into the trash and went back to my cleaning. Feeling much more relaxed.
However, those pieces were still wimpering for help the next day. I reluctantly salvaged them from the trash and began to play with them again. The results were very pleasing to my eye, and as it hangs on the wall today, I am at piece with it's rebirth.
