Pennsylvania Transformation

I actually found time amid all the paperwork and phone calls and e-mails and moving preparations to finish the challenge or at least finish it enough so I could photograph it. I have always loved that time when I suddenly notice the first quiet snowflakes falling. It seems a magical, meditative time to me and this is an attempt to capture that first moment of imminent transformation.

This is 10x16"--or would be if the three panels were joined. You can click on the above photo to enlarge it, but you may not be able to see the three snowflakes on the the middle panel.

The three panels are stuck to my working wall right now because they don't have sleeves yet, but I am trying to solve the problem of how to hang them without a rod or wire or dowel showing in the space between. Something like coat hanger wire may not be obtrusive but I will have to wait until I get the sleeves on to try it out.  I am also thinking plexiglass in some form. Any suggestions?

Can't wait to see what the rest of you have been working on!

  1. Love it, Madelene. We lived in NW Lehigh County, PA for 4 years. I miss the seasons, and your colors capture it beautifully.You have made a strong statement with your color combinations balanced with the elegant simplicity of the piecing.
    I forgot to mention my piece is 14X23.Will be a tad smaller when quilted, but hopefully keep the proportion.
