    What do you see in this quilt?

    Hi!
    My first quilt post here

    I completed this in April.
    I have an image in mind when I did this. I wonder if it is protrayed across.
    What do you see in this quilt? Comments are welcome!

    My first thought was sprouts popping up from the earth. It's a beautifuly quilt, so vibrant and full of life.

    Sorry not a thing. Never was good at abstract art. Lovely colors though.
    Will watch for other replies as you have my interest.

    Layers of earth and lovely green plants coming up. Gorgeous nature colours of trees and grasses.

    First of all, welcome aboard a very fun board! As for your quilt, I have next to no imagination... it looks like "nature" to me. But I LOVE IT! It could also look like stained glass. But, whatever it's "supposed" to be, it's fabulous!

    I see Bamboo

    Lovely quilt! Even if my vision is different - but that is what makes art so wonderful.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    Plants, sprouts, nature, yes! Reeds, sugarcane fields, yes!
    Bamboo. Bingo!

    I have in mind a bamboo forest. All different shades of green. The horizontal represents the glimpse of sky and earth through tha gaps of the bamboo. The bottom is a mulch of pebbles and fallen leaves.

    Thanks so much everyone for your encouraging words!!!

    Hm, first thing that comes to my mind is the Everglades, or a rain forest. Maybe even books (horticulture, of course :-)

    best,

    Welcome! Glad to have you? Hmmm what do I see, something that would look great in my home? LOL I see small trees (I call them treelings). Or a bookshelf with books bound in greens and browns. I love it no matter what it is.

    It reminds me of bamboo. Whatever you had in mind, it is a beautiful quilt. Thanks for sharing.

    Hmmm. I see quilts on clotheslines made with pulleys, in a jungle of bamboo.

    I think of bolts of fabric on a shelf! It's gorgeous! I love it! Now my curiousity is up though, what was the image in your mind?

    I see shelves filled with wonderful books!
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    You ladies give me so many wonderful ideas - books on a shelf, Tiffany lamps!

    I had bamboo forest in mind when I made it.
