Ch #55 Jazz

Very late and I decided to use a piece I made in Pamela Allen's class. I used the palette from a painting that Henry Matisse did, and did my own composition. I call it 'Sisters', my oldest sister plays piano and I always wanted to play stand up bass. Not exactly dance, but I hope it has enough rhythm to meet this challenge. No pre-drawing, the scissors were my pencil, there is a bit of machine quilting however most of it is hand stitched.

The Jazz quilt is wonderful and the history of you and your sister pulls everything together. I like the combination of hand and machine quilting.
