What's on the Design Wall

In keeping with the monochromatic theme I began before the grandkids arrived, here are three works that are "in process" at the moment.
Below is the value study for the quilt in the lower left above.

It's hard to see from the top photo that there are indeed two different shades of brown - one a deep, rich chocolate brown, the other a medium rust-toned batik. Here's a close-up shot of it.

All three are done with reverse applique. The top two are heavily quilted, but the edges are not yet finished. The bottom left has not yet been quilted. That's tomorrow's project... or maybe I'll try something altogether different!

Ahhh! Reverse applique. I must try this some day. I love these pieces that you create and stitch.
