|Week 2 completed piece for the 5 x 7 Challenge|
Designed and made by Christina Fairley Erickson
|Original hand-drawn design|
|Sample/tester I made of Leah Day's freemotion|
quilting design "Sharp Angled Maze"
The other criticism I would have of this piece is that when you are further away from it, the blue and purple sections are a bit too close in value to the black/red/orange/yellow windmill blades. If I were to do it on a larger scale, I would want to add more light values into those sections.
I welcome your comments and critiques on my pieces!
Thanks to other participants this week in our challenge! Here are what others are working on:

I really love the movement in the piece... you can feel, as well as see, the drops of water being joyfully shaken off this dog!
