My Exhibit at The Art's Company

"Mama' Butterflies"

Some of you may remember that I posted this quilt a while back asking for suggestions because the crocheted butterflies disappeared into the background.

I was aware that the problem laid with the value. However, I really wanted to use my Mother's crocheted butterflies on this piece. I had tried adding purple butterflies and again the value was a little to close.

I decided, for sentimental reason, I would use the crocheted butterflies over purple images even with the value problem. Actually in the gallery with great lighting the images show up well. They even project neat shadows. This quilt is a tribute to my Mother.

Below is an image of the whole quilt.
