Passing Through

I stopped machine quilting on this one - did all I intended too. All of the discharged rings are sewn all the way around (if you click on it, you can get pretty close up) - and then put it up on the design wall to just eyeball it. Something is bothering me about it and I don't want to face the music. Step up and have a shot. 36x36, I think I named it "Passing Through" because it's not going to be around very long.

This is lovely...like some exotic organism under the sea!

I love the colors but I'm with you.

I was playing around cropping it in photoshop - I think you can get more tension in the figure ground relationship if you chop 1/2 of the black off the bottom of the quilt and tighten it up a bit around the edges. That gives the added circles more weight to me.

There is "something" but I can't place my finger on it...but that "something" leans in the direction of worth saving because there is also "something" that is working well...the colour, yes, but even "something" more...

I agree with Lisa.

I was looking uncritically, enjoying the color, until you asked, and then I thought -- "too balanced, top and bottom.
