A muggy and grey day with a visit to the periodontist slated early (have no fear — only stitch-removal!)
The Trayvon Martin quilt (blogged earlier here) — “White House of Privilege” — and its intended background have both changed enough that they no longer partner well together. More on that later, but for now — how the house is evolving . . .
I added more strips of blue flanking the house, to make it stand out more. White pickets were added to the foreground later.
Its funny how fabric dictates what it wants to do, it does seem to have the upper hand some times.
I may be leaving this on the wrong day, my email blog from you seems longer than this post. The zigzaggy fabric in the other images looks like something I used to wear in the 70’s.
Hi Deb. I wondered what happened when I edited drastically after an initial post. Ah! The other pix will be posted (again for you), tomorrow.
the house seems to have developed a face.
yes, and a personality. but not menacing. thanks for coming by, Jude! 🙂
The blue gives it more character. A sort of frame…
I like the off kilter windows and the couched red roof outline. & yes to the blue you added, making it pop.
I thought the blue necessary along the side so that the house didn’t disappear, as you have said… windows have gotten more definition, but they are still ‘off kilter’…. not sure I could make them ‘true’ if I wanted (what does that say about me?!)
I am wondering…. who lives in this precious house?
not sure – somebody white, possibly a white family, probably not poor…
Awesome and inspirational!
Thank you Juana!
