Finished with all seven!!!

Here's my blue quilt:

Blue Mountains  (details below)

Made like my sketch quilt, with some fabric stitched directly to a canvas backing, and some areas just thread on the canvas.  I just love the effect, and the process.

When we set up the ground rules for Intl Threads I said I wanted the themes or prompts to be broad enough that I could use these quilts as etudes or experiments for things I wanted to check out.  I have been pretty consistent in sticking to this approach, and have already come up with some ideas that have been springboards to larger pieces.  I think these last two pieces have opened up a huge new area that I plan to work in this year.  So thank you to everybody!!!!
