Witches and Such...
The positive and negative images of my Fabled Fibers Challenge quilt featuring Baba Yaga - the witch in charge of keeping the fire alive.
I've sometimes felt like the "wicked witch of the west" or the wicked witch of the north - the Ice Queen... These two images struck me as pretty good representations of both!

I lost yesterday's posting with the whole story of Vasalisa and Baba Yaga when I was updating this photo, sad to say. And I'm not about to rewrite it so suffice it to say that the borders of both quilts are shiny metallic fabrics which shift and change colors in different lighting. Enjoy the photos!
