And Moon, 6.5 x 4.5"
I had a fantastic time creating these two pieces. There is also a new one ready to photograph. And these are named! I still have four other, larger pieces that are completed but are waiting for names. But with my antique book full of words, these pieces just seemed to name themselves.
This beautiful, old book entitled The Growing World, is a treasure trove of words. The book just fell open to an article about eclipses of the sun and moon. So. Quickly named. I'm sure some book lover would reel at the though of tearing up an intact book from 1889, but too late. And I'm having too much fun to stop now.
I'm also overcoming certain fears by working small. If I want to paint something AFTER the quilt is finished, I feel freer doing it. I'm not ruining a piece worth several hundred dollars. And there are some mistakes on these. But they've been covered up. Wheeeee.
The next two pieces are green, gold, and brown. If anyone is interested in a special color combination, please let me know. I'll even do pink!!! Really.
