Bloggers' Quilt Festival


Sky, 2009, and detail
I went around the Alexandria downtown area one Sunday afternoon and took many photographs. There’s no shortage of urban decay here. Although Alexandria was burned to the ground during the Civil War, there are still a few buildings from the era of Reconstruction, as well as many built later and abandoned. This particular building appeared to still be in use as I could see lights on inside. I went back a few weeks later to take some more photos and could not find it.

Wow - I really love the whole reflection and window imagery you have going - you can really see the inspiration in your finish quilt - it also has a really nice abstract value! Lovely!!
