The piece is simplistic with minimal stitching. How I love the hand stitching, the holding of the fabrics, the in and out rhythmic motion of the mark making. I started with a few machine lines, then the hand couching on black yarn, the ladder stitching in black floss, the larger red ladder stitches and quilting - lastly the red beads around the moon. I'm pleased with the result.
These two I entered into a juried show at St. Augustine Art Association in the themed show "Red." I guess they've been accepted as I haven't gotten a call to pick them up. I do like themed shows if something pops into my head right away.
I'm working on a quilt for the grandson - a more modern one - using some scraps plus new fabrics - mostly blue and red. I've sewn a crazy patched piece for a focus. We'll see how the design progresses. I'll be stitching this up in between other projects.
