My office art is officially hung!! I've been working for 6 months and I never thought it would take this long. (Remember I had a hard time finding a border fabric, and then I couldn't decide on a final quilting design). But the wait is over.
I had 2 bare walls in my new office, this is the smaller one.
The one by my desk is the larger one, the one most people will see. This is also the wall I look at 95% of the time, as I mostly do work on the computer.
Several months ago I brought in a bunch of quilts I already had and auditioned them. This one worked perfectly. It was made for a guild challenge a few years ago. I love the quirky nature of the blue leaves and the asymmetry of the square in a square blocks. It's always been one of my favorites and I'm thrilled I get to see it hanging.
We moved the bookcase to the corner, and it looks perfect.
I initially thought I would make a tumbler quilt for the big wall, but when I auditioned it, I didn't really like it. So I decided on the Courthouse Steps, I was working for an attorney after all LOL. There is a wool rug in my office that gave me the palette for the colors. The neutrals look great with the wall color.
It is just wonderful that I can look at this all day long.
I get to look at the quilting as the shadows cross it - too bad it never photographs as well as it looks in person. No surprise that I put the kitty where I could see it up close :). It's at the top of the middle block.
And here's the kitty in the small piece - so fun
This is the view from my desk of the huge downtown metropolis of Pensacola!! I'm on the 7th floor which gives me this great view. The building on the left is the Courthouse -
and hidden behind that bush are the............ Courthouse Steps!! How cool is that?
Even better than getting to look at my quilts all day, is the fact that my boss is totally on board with this. He has mentioned several times that he really likes the way the quilts look. He was not really familiar with "wall art quilts" and I think it was a pretty big stretch for him to agree. So it makes me even happier that what makes me happy also got a big thumbs up from him.
Have a great day,
