The Inner Artist

This use to be a UFO (unfinished object) that has now become a finished object! I am currently taking an online class from Myrna Giesbrecht called "Self Expressions". I highly recommend it. It is teaching me to listen to my inner artist. This little piece had become just another piece in a pile of pieces started but never finished because there was something I didn't like about it. So I added more embellishments, used my Pebbles chalks, re-inked the leaves, added a binding and just let my inner artist take over to complete it. I named it "Moon River" because the song has always represented a peaceful time to me. I actually felt peace when I just let go and followed my inner muse on this one. It will hang in my studio to remind me of peaceful times. (The quilt size is 8 1/2" x 11")

Vivian,
I'm a fellow classmate at QU. Just wanted to say that I really like this piece. There is lots to discover. I particularly like how the leaves are enclosed in a bubble in the quilting. A lovely touch.
