We are offically half way through the Fiberactions challenge and I am still enjoying every minute of it. You wouldn't think that given that I wait until the last minute to do mine! But I have always worked best to a deadline. However, in this case, I did have another plan and I had to change it. A couple of weeks ago I had a big allergy incident at the dentist and that ruined my energy level since. I just couldn't get my original plan done so I did a simplified version.
With this challenge I wanted to revisit the techniques that I used in the Communication challenge. I did that and made some improvements. So I suppose you could say that the transformations is happening within me. I am becoming more confident with the symmetry technique and starting to make them unique to me.....a little anyway.

I know. It's a Christmas piece. I know that it's not "art" to most people but I like it. Chris LOVES it.
I have a big collection of symmetrical fabrics and I had this one Christmas print that I have tried to use in almost every kaleidoscope quilt I have made. It has never fit. I made myself use it on this one. Fortunately it's mostly used up now!
On this piece I quilted the background first and then applied the "ornaments". The binding is from a coordinating striped fabric. I like the frame effect.
Here are a few detail shots.
