Hidden Stars of Bethlehem


Finished. The colours are taken from a limited scale, I sometimes put such rules on my work as "take what is in this bag" or "use as many colours as possible from Grandma Elizabeth's wool". The full range from my drawer is less inspiring to me than the limits.

Happy Holidays to you, whatever way you celebrate!

This turned out beautifully. I find that sometimes putting limits on ourselves actually makes us stretch farther. Some of my most creative moments are when I DONT have a huge variety of elements to chose from.

sieht super aus, ich bin ja vor dem Spinnen sehr der Quilterei zugetan gewesen.
Echt klasse. Schöne Ostergrüße auch Dir

Very nice Eva! What is your ground fabric? I cannot tell if it is canvas or cotton?

Happy Day!

Sooo pretty! I love the colors and the way the stars kind of toy with me. :)

I really like this piece. It has a Kaffe Fassett feel to it, a lot of the colors he uses.

The inspiration of limits is something I often think about. It's a delightful result in this case.

Working out on your balcony must have been successful as it did not take long to finish! Beautiful!

Jude, if finishing is not part of your concept, it might spoil your work
