April TIF

This has been finished for over a week but it's taken me a while to get round to posting it - I wish I could explain why, to myself as much as anyone else, but there doesn't seem to be any reason behind my lack of drive!

The finished quilt is much as intended, though I wish I'd made the yellow flashes on the larger circle larger. I've stitched the three sections so closely together that it's hard to tell, from any distance, that they were separate pieces. I suspect this is the penalty for using commercial fabric with its' absence of variation.

The sections represent how change can fragment things and bring them back together again - either as a whole or as part of a path to something else.

How very profound Linda. No wonder you've got no energy!!! Seriously, like it very much and am considering getting you to write my artist's statements.

Excellent! And a good reminder to those glass half empty people like me.

This is brilliant, Linda, it picks up the tension in change beautifully, with the stark sharp yellow stitching against the circular motive. And the theme is picked up again with the offset semicircles, works very well indeed.
Hope you feel more energized soon.

It's great Linda, and when you find out how to energize - could you please send some my way?
