Ok, I realize Yellowstone Quilt Fest is upon us, especially those of us that are working to get it going but I also believe that we should all be posting our work.
So here is "After the Fires" I really do not like this piece, it is not my vision at all. I have had it pinned to my design wall for months and it has not gotten any better. So, my plan is to try it again with a different background. It may not be the background that is not working. My thoughts are that it is the red tulle I put behind the trees. I quilted it and then burnt it back. I am now thinking that I might like it better if I burnt it back and then quilted it. What do you think?

  2. I like the trees a lot, but the background is busy. Try a plainer background like Barb suggested, but keep those trees!

  3. I would like to change my above comment, but can't seem to find a place to edit comments.
    I was thinking "landscape" when I made the comment, and then thought perhaps this is an abstract, not a landscape.
    In any case I like the colors a lot. The background looks like gray ash. Looking at it a second time, I would not change it. I really like it.

  4. Barb, I am sorry, but I mistakenly erased your comment instead of mine. I clicked on the wrong date. Please post your comment again.
