an oldie but a goodie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

ahhh the memories this brings back…i had been wanting to do a quilt like this for years, so i did it! …however, i had cataracts! and the fabric choices were not the best. the white has marks, from what i do not know, that i discovered after the cataracts were removed and replaced. i had understood that vision differences would be apparent after having the work done. as i had worked for ophthalmologosts in another life, and an artist, watercolorist, made a piece prior to the cataract surgery and then remade it after the surgery….it was amazing the difference…so to all of you out there who are putting it off, don’t! an easy surgery with terrific results. simply find a dr who does the sitichless cataract surgery and go for it!!!

anyway, i am going to remake this beauty and with glorious fabrics. there are some batiks in the original and i believe all batiks will make for a lovely stained glass effect what do you think? and maybe wider black bias between the pieces…hmmm…thinking thinking thinking

the quilting was done in the echo format, for the most part. it gives a motion to the quilt, like the breeze is helping the little hummingbird fly. and if the light is good, the shadows created are splendid!

today is a glorious fall day and a day for a wedding in the family. should be waaaay too much fun. and with a sit down dinner afterwards and then on to the party time. young love…so sweet

until next time…

remember…

fiber art, fiber fun, fiber feel, create!!!!!!
