pictures!

Until I actually have something to say, I'll just post a couple of pictures of framed minis I did for the 80/20 auction. These are completely finished small quilts, about 7x9, mounted without glass in frames. Any idea what to ask for as a minimum bid at the auction? Even if they don't sell, these are 2 I'd be happy to bring home.
The African piece is rust stained fabric with the African skyline cut from a piece of commercial fabric, a leftover flower from another African piece I did last year, and a mask cut from a commercial print with frayed burlap beard. The white elephants are beads and the whole thing is free-motion quilted.
The sax piece is a glittered sax Christmas tree ornament, the hands and face are black polymer clay and the background is a commercial print with music notes on it. Sheer metallic gold netting with an overlay of heavy black mesh. 'Liquid gold' applique notes and echo quilted lines.

Outstanding! I am sure you will not be able to hang these on your wall because the will sell.

Nicely done, Rhonda. I agree; you won't get to enjoy them--they'll be gone.
