Last of the journal quilts

The basis of this 8" square quiltlet was a painting found in a magazine, which I cut into "distances" and then overlapped them, stitching as each new layer was added -
The irregular area on the left proved awkward to overlap, and had to be replaced with a suitable colour from elsewhere in the magazine.

Gives a bit of mystery, don't you think? -

The quiltlet measured only 7.5" square, so had to be "framed", appropriately in gold -
High Horizons: Harvest
The rest of this year's journal quilts have black satin stitched edges and are ready for adding to the CQ yahoogroup files -
