Sun and Wind Quilt

This was designed for a recycled art contest. (No, I didn't win).

The top, batting, and backing are made from recycled clothing and bedding. This quilt is 90% recycled materials. Only the thread was new - LOL!

The black background represents a solar panel. The red-orange-yellow sunburst signifies solar energy and the triangle blocks represent the three blades of modern day wind mills. When I master free motion quilting, I will embellish this quilt further, to better portray the swirling powerful center of our universe.

Good colors, very interesting, I like the way it makes my eye move around the quilt.
