The Wood Between the Worlds: Collage

This was my entry into the Fairfield Quilt Block contest for 2004. The theme was "Into the Woods", using the color blue. Though this did not seem an obvious pairing, I thought at once of "The Magician's Nephew by C.S. Lewis. There is a scene where the protagonist finds himself in a quiet place with many round pools of water, and discovers that they are entry-ways into other worlds. Jumping into one of the pools, he comes upon the lion Aslan in the act of creating the world of Narnia.

I submitted this piece at almost the last possible day, and figured it would be my contribution to one of the charity quilts that most entries would go into. Imagine my surprise when stepping out of the house for the first time after a week spent home sick, I found a box full of goodies and the news that my entry was one of 19 first prize winners!

Unfortunately, whatever photos I may have taken of the piece got lost, and it took a while before I could get a photo file from Fairfield, smaller than I would have liked, and not as bright as it actually was, but here it is.
