chooseday challenge - part 2

Okay, here 'tis. I've made a few adjustments since I took the photo, so it hangs a bit straighter now. The pieces are connected by safety pins and silver chain at the moment, but that may change if/when I think of something else. Making this was so much fun, and has also given me a few ideas for some more pieces in the future.















Sorry some of the photos are a bit on the dark side. It's not that dark in real life!

Excellent! You put me to shame, I'm still thinking about the best approach to my idea.

Looks really cool! Thanks for sharing your process and thoughts. Aren't hardware stores simply the best? My family won't go near them with me, because I look at Everything. You never know what you'll see and maybe need later on...LOL

I really like this! I especially like the chain and safety pin connections. I love how the pieces are all similar but different. Very cool.

This is amazing - it's so difficult to get this technique of hanging different pieces tofether to work. I really love your interpretation of the theme as well as the detail in the individual pieces. Some people think I'm mad when I say quilts take on a life of their own, but they do don't they?

I love the way you interpreted the theme, and your color choices. And your use of hardward items really makes it interesting. I've recently discovered how fun washers can be, guess I'll have to do some further exploring--
