Second piece from Rayna's book finished

Well, not finished finished but the quilt top is done!
Contain the Light
Commercial and Hand-dyed Cottons
38 x 47 inches


  1. I love the movement in this! WOW!

  2. OMG, Judith! This is one I wish I had made - it is wonderful! It's a piece of modern art -- and while it uses my techniques, it is totally YOURS. That is what makes me so happy!

  3. Whoa Judith...great work. It is a little intimidating to see these great pieces and know I have to show a piece I'm working on. (Oh well, my saving grace is that we show "failures" too.) I'm hoping to get down to the studio later today. Keep up the good work!

  4. Judith. That is simple fabulous!!!

  5. It's a beautiful piece, Judith! I love the value contrast and the combination of brights and darks.

  6. Amazing! You have inspired me to get back to my therapy sewing, so I can make something out of my strips and squares! Great work, Judith!

  7. Rayna, Received and finished reading your book. I used to watch my grandma bake with the ingredients in a glass too. I know what you mean about feel. That's how I make latkas - they feel right.
    I was itching the whole time I was reading the book. I refused to move til I had finished it. Can't wait to get started today!!!
    ps. I love no rules

  8. Seems perfect to me, it's simply stunning.
