Kandinsky impressions


All that is left to do is the binding.  I mulled over whether or not to hand quilt this piece, then decided on machine.  My hand quilting is not really very good.  I wanted to play with line and form for the quilting.  I did the lines first, then the groups of circles.  It still felt unfinished, so I selected three small sections to do small stippling.  I am thinking a red binding would work well, but I will sleep on it and see if I still like the idea.
This has been a very interesting challenge.  I have gained a new appreciation for solids watching all the wonderful creations appear here.  My husband is very sad I am sending this one off.  I may have to find another painting to interpret for him so he is not so sad.

Wow! Wow! Wow! I think the idea of stippling in sections is the key to quilting I've been looking for!

Very arty, Miki and a little bit different with the quilting.

What a great piece, Miki ... I love what you've done! (You were so much more successful with your Kandinsky than I was with mine.)
