Cabin in the Stars
As I left Your Arts Gallery the other night the weather had turned very very cold, but the sky was dark and clear and full of stars. Of course, stars stud the skies at night everywhere, but I never really noticed them until we came to the Northwoods.
I was reminded of this quilt which I made a few years ago titled Cabin in the Stars. Eight pointed stars with log cabin centers comprise the main quilt. I chose a black background to represent the night sky. A green leafy border sets it all off.
The photo was obviously taken in summer - I didn't crop it, just to remind us that winter really doesn't last forever.
