Amigos

I was on vacation when this new challenge was posted.  I did not quite understand "Gestalt".  This is my idea of gestalt.  I did not want to see what others had posted until after I did mine, because I did not want to be influenced by what others had done.  I think I'm pretty close.  The finish quilt will be approximately 25"X17".  I don't know why, but the true colors of the quilt is not coming through.  All comments, critiques and criticisms welcome.

This definitely fits the challenge, and has wonderful movement. Use of negative space is exemplary - a great idea, with an appealing subject. Look forward to seeing the stitching later.

This is a great piece. How did you come up with your pattern? I too find the negative spaces really interesting. The manes give the sense of movement. Well done!

Louise, in answer to your question, I'm taking an art class and we did a piece on "Gestalt". My husband likes the southwestern style and we already have one of those metal pieces similar to this. So that's where my inspiration came from.
