Minimal design. That bee wouldn't leave my bonnet until I tried some more. First I limited my choices to a beige fabric and a few scraps of handpainted blacks. Improv piecing and composing was fun, especially the curves. But I think I abandoned restraint with the quilting lines. That might be the next challenge--how to fill negative space minimally while still creating interest.
So what to do with a pile of small art quilts? A perennial problem for someone who likes to make them. These six I sewed together on the left edges to create a "book." Sure makes them easier to show to groups of people.
On that note, I am totally tickled that my little 12 inch donation to the 2016 SAQA Benefit Auction
sold for $350.00 to a lovely person in Geneva, Switzerland. Here's one last look at it, although I do have a larger version I kept for myself.
