metromod travel exhibit

This is my entry for the raveling show. It's called There Was a Crooked Man. As I was piecing my strips of greens and oranges, I saw a crooked house appearing which reminded me of the childhood verse : "There was a crooked man who walked a crooked mile; He found a crooked sixpence upon a crooked stile. He bought a crooked cat which caught a crooked mouse and they all lived together in a little crooked house." After doing some basic hand-quilting, I added some heavier embroidery floss to emphasize the house's form.... and added some quilted steps (crooked of course) to get to the house.


  1. Great colors! Love that crooked house. It will be so fun to see them all together.

  2. The color palette is wonderful ... & the movement ... I'm drawn in to the hint of the house ,,,
