This piece is titled "Orange Peel" and makes repeating diamond shapes when the blocks are placed together. I did quite a bit of hand embellishing on this diamond just left of center.
The finished piece is mounted to canvas and can therefore be hung from the wire with a single nail.
Here I saw the kind of diamonds that you can frost yourself with! Where these smaller blocks meet, an interesting star pattern results.
The piece is called "Three Stone Diamond". While I love my engagement ring (a millennium diamond ring), I would adore a three stone diamond ring! I have left several blunt hints, but have yet to receive one. I'll keep trying!
Here are the quilts hanging at The Northumberland County Career & Arts Center Fine Art Gallery in Shamokin, PA. The show will be up through May 13, 2011. I love how one of my pieces is hanging between an interpretation of The Mona Lisa and a self portrait of Shene Woodley that I think looks just like Yoko Ono!
