from TEN CAT GARDEN by MING HSU of Australia - a finalist in Australasian Quilt Convention challenge "TEN" - Wholecloth quilt using vintage floral tablecloth, with ten quilted cats hidden throughout the free-motion quilting. More detail shots, and others from the exhibit, at link. Less virtuoso quilters like me: Think animal line art, an extra layer of batting under that motif, with dense quilting in the background. Image search MING HSU QUILT for much more free-motion goodness!
➰ Free from clutching at themselves, the hands can handle; free from looking after themselves, the eyes can see; free from trying to understand itself, thought can think. In such feeling, seeing, and thinking life requires no future to complete itself nor explanation to justify itself ~Alan Watts
A man rides a galloping horse as seen in this series of photographs depicting motion. These images, taken by Eadweard Muybridge, demonstrated a then-contentious theory that all four legs of a horse left the ground when at full gallop. From a limited edition of 295.
