Basket Weave Quilt

 We drove home late last night from
Road To California 
What a wonderful experience.
So much to see and do!
I took a few moments here and there
away from our Vendor booth
to capture some of the beautiful quilts in the Show.
The bright colors and geometric designs of
Basket Weave II: See Saw
by Ann B. Feitelson 
Montague, MA
drew me in.
I am always curious of the process that goes on
in a quilters brain
as they develop a piece.
What visions and colors do they see in the creative process?
I appreciated how much Ann shared on her card
that accompanied this quilt.
 She wrote:
Five sequenced solids combine with five sequenced stripes or plaids
to make a group of 25.
The color groups are interwoven and
all of the baskets in a color group face one direction.
Directional shifts reveal the different color groups.
 Triangle shapes have reciprocal forces, pushing up and down,
like a See Saw, reversing and balancing.  
The title also refers to seeing and having seen,
the way vision shifts in every blink."
