I can’t resist sharing a few more quilts from the Georgia Celebrates Quilts show. These fit nicely into this week’s Roy G.Biv photo challenge —
The quilter based this work on a photograph she took when emerging from the Tottenham Court Road tube station in London, 2010, and made it for her guild’s “Inspired by Travel” challenge.
This next one’s called “Let Your Light Shine” …
One more, and this one’s more obviously rainbow-themed — an applique of colored strips in rainbow order applied to seven colors of gray fabric, adapted from a pattern published by Kansas City Star Quilts.
As for my downsizing projects, work goes on. This week’s progress: selling a box full of books, a 29 volume set of vintage 1911 Encyclopedia Britannica I found in the basement. It’s always dangerous to sort though books, and the detailed articles, wonderful illustrations, and fold-out maps in this set were tempting me big time. I knew I couldn’t keep them though, so I listed them on eBay. I was feeling quite triumphant when they sold (who knew that anyone besides me would be attracted to vintage encyclopedias?) that is, until time came to pack and mail what turned out to be just over 87 pounds of books — but now it’s done and I’m glad they’re off to a new home.
Oh, and who is Roy G. Biv? He’s the acronym for the seven colors of the rainbow: Red/Orange/Yellow/Green/Blue/Indigo/Violet. I’ll bet the encyclopedia knows about him.
How long has it been since you’ve seen an encyclopedia?
