"Tiki Room" 70" x 54"
There was a bar called the "Tiki Room" where I grew up in Oregon. I remember longing to go inside, but I was too young. Once I became of age, the attraction had faded, and I never entered the place. It's gone now. But my childhood fantasy is still alive.
I imagined it all beaded curtains,
Tiki statues and surfer boys.
It's made with this "Crumbler" template, which I won in a drawing from Kathy. She's making a really lovely quilt with the same template and her reproduction fabrics.
I've been checking out my designs with the black and white function in iPhoto. It helps me achieve light/dark balance and see where I've got "muddy" places that need to be corrected. Really helpful!
