Geometry in Bloom 22 x 22
Machine applique and quilting, fabric manipulation (texturing, weaving) beads
Today is the deadline for the Hoffman Challenge, so it should be a good time to post my entry. I scheduled this post before I left home, then deleted it. I've seen some beauties on the web, and don't have much confidence in mine. However, I decided what the heck, and here it is. (Because of Picassa, I could retrieve the picture. Did you know that unless you specifically delete a photo, it stays in your Picassa album, even when the post is gone?)
I didn't like the challenge fabric. I don't like this color, a minority opinion, I know. The design seemed to be too prominent for a secondary fabric and not strong enough to be a focus fabric or to fussy cut. I didn't intend to enter. But once this idea came, I went with it. I love the colors, and especially the ombre background fabric, and it was fun to make. Whatever the outcome, I actually like this the best of all the ones I've made.
After a week babysitting grandchildren, I'm heading off to Australia as this posts. See you in mid-August!
