Our word this time was "Departure" and my work fits the word in three ways. It is 16 x20 horizontal this time instead of vertical; it has very simple wavy lines for background quilting instead of my usual more ornate stuff; and I elected to make it a tribute to my kitty Harry who recently died very unexpectedly at the tender age of 4. The eyes, you will notice are a sort of hybrid...part human; part feline. There is a poem by an unknown author handwritten in the background very faintly. The quilting is very simple, I wanted the eyes to be the focus of the piece.
It is a painted wholecloth, using Tsukineko inks for both the background and the image. I used Quilters Dream "Puff" batting, and Superior's "So Fine" threads.
