Tea Party stage III

I am in a panic as this piece is due Dec 9th!  I still have to square, bind, embellish, and work on the composition some more.  I am hating it at this point but that is typical of me.  Some space away from the piece and then I can assess it more objectively.  Right now, I feel it is way too busy which is something I do not like normally..  we shall see....

Army Brat

This the is quilt that was accepted into Houston's Festival Gallery of Art Quilts competition, Memories of My Childhood.  My quilt's title is "Army Brat" .  I grew up living  20 places in 16 years as a military dependant.   The first thing that came into my mind upon reading the theme of this competition was moving vans, displacement, and my father's recommendation that I bloom where I was planted (for the moment). This picture was taken by a friend that was fortunate enough to attend the show and kind enough to send me a picture of it hanging with the ribbon.  I used multiple techniques and like the piece because of the personal connection that I have to it.
