Burnt Orange Wool

Orange wool, Wam and Natural batting, free-stitched on machine, 5" x 7" matted to 11" x 14"

This small art quilt did not photograph well.  The thread--both color and quantity-- is muted and understated, but the contrast is greater than shown here.  The process was fast--an intuitive choosing of color and design that developed as I machine stitched.  This may become my SAQA donation for the New England Quilt Museum in honor of the SAQA exhibit, "No Holds Barred" starting in January 2011.
