More Small "Quilt" Art

I made some more small wall quilts!

Remember this quilt top that I couldn't decide what to do with because I didn't like it that much?

Well, you can probably tell, I chopped it up to create the base for 3 of these pieces.

I'm enjoying exploring these small (8"x8") pieces.  I brought them to a improv quilting critique group that I belong to and I was heartened by the group's response to them.  I don't think that a quilt purist would be okay with the raw edges or the way they're mounted to canvas or the lack of intense stitching, but as art pieces, I think they work!

For me, a big goal in my art journey is to find a way (or many ways) to bring together all of the different creative disciplines that I love.  I feel like these pieces are a step in that direction.  It feels great!

Thanks for stopping by!
