Bamboo II have been working with the constraints of a 12" square. Challenging for me. Not so much the size, but the shape. In my previous entry, I showed this piece and complained that I felt it was too busy. I decided it needed a border to create some negative space. I ended up trimming it down considerably so it would fit on the background that is a separate quilt that has been stretched over stretcher bars.
It doesn't really show in the pictures, but I am pleased with the extra dimension created by the smaller quilt placed over a background.
