Throwback Thursday ~ Art Quilts

Some more quilts from the closet! These were both juried in to a local art show a few years back.

The first one is called Latitude. As I was making this, I was thinking about how much latitude or freedom we give to others, how far we allow them into our personal space mentally and emotionally.

I hand dyed all the fabrics in this one.

I was into the funky grid even then! Here is a look at the back.

This next one is called Une Semaine, which means a week in French. This one actually won an award in the show with a cash prize, kaching!

I love the quilting on this. I need to do this again.

Hope you enjoyed this look back. Have a great day.

Linking up with My Quilt Infatuation
