Oh My

I don't know about you, but I spent Tuesday evening glued to my computer screen and the radio, listening to the election results come in from around the country.  I ended up going to bed around 10:30pm without knowing how it would end.

I spent Wednesday glued to the radio, listening to the things people had to say.  oh. my. goodness.

Coincidentally, our guild had a 2-color quilt challenge set for today.  I'd wracked my brain for months, trying to come up with something.  I had nothing.  Until Wednesday.  After listening to the reactions for a couple of hours, I was spurred on to one of my own.  Five hours later, I had this quilt.  I call it "Shock and Awe."

Some of my friends thought I might have begun it before Wednesday, or at least had pieces of it already finished.  No, I did not.  It was all done on Wednesday, in response to the election results.

oh. my.  I am still speechless.

I think this is great. So many people are taking their reactions to their art. I love that we have this medium to show how we feel. And even better for you, you can use it for a challenge! Yea! You won 2 times.
