waste not

 A few weeks ago, I posted a failed experiment with four block that wound up looking like eggs. I removed the block that wasn't quite the right color, made a replacement and embraced the eggs that were struggling to be seen. I wasn't about to throw the blocks in the waste bin, that wouldn't be any fun.

"Dreams on night watch"
2013, 12.5" x 12.5", hand appliquéd and hand quilted

The title is a nod to the night the captain noted on his way to bed after his midnight to 4 watch that all he could think about was a full diner style breakfast with eggs, grits and the works. Great. Now it's 4 AM and I have four hours to contemplate the same thing. He could have stayed quiet, but no.
