Succulents Revisted

This past Saturday our Fiber Revolution show in Stamford, CT was cancelled due to the impending remnants of the hurricane.  I decided to make good use of this "found time" and finish up the quilting on this little quilt.  I had done a similar one a few weeks ago, but that one is going to the Silent Auction at Quilt Festival in Houston, never to be seen by me again.  I wanted to have one for my portfolio so I made this one.  It's a slightly different format and a little bigger, 26" x 18".  It uses the same digitally altered photos of Hens and Chicks, a garden succulent, and my hand dyed fabrics. You can see those pictures on my Aug. 17 blog, Succulent Succulents.


Here is a detail.



I like the way the quilting shows up on the back.  Click on each picture for a better view.
