Kiwi Laguna revisited

  Posted by Picasa

This is the piece Anna asked me to enlarge to enter in the quilt show in April. It used to stop at the blue/green stripes at the bottom and the blue strip with the flowers on the left.

It was a bit of a challenge to add to it in a way that "blended" and "fit" with what was already there. I was willing to take on that challenge because a)this piece grew organically from the original painted/stamped square at the top right so it seemed natural for it to grow a bit more and b)I've been rethinking some of my "finished" tops anyway, toying with the idea that both some borderish work and a larger size would add to their impact. Whew, how's that for a run-on sentence?

I'm calling this Kiwi Laguna because those are the color names on the el-cheapo bottles of craft paint that inspired the original painted/stamped square that was the beginning of this piece.

Love it. And I think the title is very clever! Did you applique that flower panel? Everything works so well together. Great job.
