Creating art quilts is how I can be "plaid" in a "striped" world.

Lights in the Park 24"x38"
This exercise in extemporaneous piecing was inspired by a painting by contemporary artist Leonid Afremov www.afremov.com. I worked from a small magazine picture on my friend Sharon's inspiration board. Of course the complementary colors drew me in, but also the opportunity to create an abstract composition from a very lively picture. All the fun, however, was in the wild piecing which was brought under control as trapezoidal blocks.
