Modern Guild Guild Challenge Piece Finished! "Gearing Up" $325

Elizabeth Garlington was the speaker
at the Modern Quilt Guild meeting 
a few months ago.  After her presentation, Elizabeth 
asked the group to each put the 2 fat quarters brought for a mystery challenge on a table. 
I presumed that we were going to use our 2 fat quarters to put a composition together just using our 
original fabrics.  I was surprised when we were to cover our eyes and choose 2 new fabrics from the table for our challenge.    I chose this red linen and a cotton beige.  I use red a lot in my art but not beige making this quite a challenge for me.  
Hand appliqued circles and squares are embellished with Big Stitch circles and 
improvisational lines.
20 inches long X 16 inches wide.
"Gearing Up" - $325
Modern Quilt Guild Challenge. 2 Blindly chosen fabrics. Red linen (I loved) & solid  beige (I did not collaborate with hours of Big Stitch & hand quilting.
