I'm Off

I am off to Michigan. This space won't have any additions for about a week. Here's a quilt I had begun last summer that features our family cottage on Lake Michigan.

"MaCowCowa" - 20"x27" -2006

I used a "wonky" perspective to portray this 3-story barn of a cottage that has a cow theme. Hence, the name for the cottage. My intent was to convey the summer fun atmosphere that pervades. There is a fairly constant stream of family and friends visiting us and the beach. We have a lot of fun, sun, comraderie, good food, creative energy and projects ... and of course Elvis.

Give a honk and a wave if you see a black trailer on the road with a sign that asks, "Where's Elvis?" between Tennessee and Michigan in the next few days.

I love the wonky edges to this! Please share how you do the edges? Is that couching?
