When is a quilt finished?

Quilting is always open to recycling and reworking.  These fish first appeared on the ‘Fish Cube’–a 6-sided version of an aquarium that I enjoyed putting together.

The Fish cube missed something essential about quilting, however.  It did not have a softness that invited you to feel the smoothness of the silk.  This winter, I went through some of my leftover work to see what needed reworking.   The three pillows are a big improvement on the old format.  The silk paintings are not complex enough, and the quilting was not elaborate enough to qualify as a sculptural piece.  They are much better this way.
