Working on Serenity

Yes, I am working on "serenity" in more ways than one! While one way is all about peace of mind, the other is about my new series, "Serenity." 

Introducing the "Serenity Series" 

Serenity 1

I like the flowing lines of dense quilting around the layers. I changed thread color to lighter and darker tones as I worked through the piece. It gives a subtle variation to the texture.

The series is named Serenity because the very first quilt I designed in this series was based on emotions, and I happened to be in a "serene" state of mind when I was making it. When it was finished, I loved this quilt so much I decided to base my next series on it and see where it would take me.

The slightly "jagged" edges of the black lines are intentional ... the way they would appear in rocks and soil strata in nature.

I wonder how this image will evolve as the series continues to develop?
