Kick at the Darkness

I’d been working on this improvisational photoquilt off and on for a while. In fine quilting tradition, it combines scraps from previous hot rod, griege, and eigengrau photoquilts in a pattern that I made up as I went along. The result looks a little like a bar graph and a little like a flower patch.

Sometimes I find decision making — how many pieces? light or dark? longer or shorter? move up or down? — to be an almost overwhelming obstacle, but it feels good to push through it.
