between a rock and a feather

My blogless (hopefully not for long) friend Vivien and I participated in a little challenge between ourselves this month. We each gave the other a found object and had incorporate both those objects into a quilt bigger that six inches square. Vivien found two feathers and I brought two rocks. The results are quite different for each of us and we are both happy with them too.

Vivien chose to trap the feather between sheets of clear plastic which made it difficult to photograph, but it looked great. Her work is very bold and strong. I love her fabric choices.
My rock and feather are obscured by rust dyed chiffon, it turned out to be a rather abstract work after I got done painting with Shiva PaintstiksĀ®.
