Jubilation

I have to be honest - even after the celebrations we've had in the UK this summer I couldn't really get into this challenge. Perhaps it's a personality thing, I'm much more of your quiet inward glow kind of person than a cheering and whooping type. So I decided to use two images of 2012 - our Union Flag and the ubiquitous bunting and play with an insertion technique and some quilting:

  8. Well done, Linda. This is so typically British - subtly understated. Says it all 'in the best possible taste'! Very clever way of portraying the flag and the bunting. Hilary

  9. Nice balance in your piece and nice quilting. I like the bunting waving as it does and the hint of the flag

  10. The color and contrast make your piece so effective as well as the quilting lines that give it movement! By Jove you've got it! :-)
