“His wedding and hers” (January 2014) was made for the annual Norwegian Quilt Association competition. The theme was Lady and the tramp (contrasts between feminine/masculine, smooth/rough etc), and was to be interpreted any way we wanted to.
(Sorry, my only head on picture was taken indoors)
When reading the theme, I immediately thought about weddings and how the bride’s and groom’s perspectives often seem very different. While the groom may show rather reluctantly up in any old suit, the bride often has planned her wedding since early childhood. Disclaimer: this is based more on life portrayed in TV, movies and books than real life experiences, but still, I find it rather baffling.
Anyway, I envisioned a rooster popping in at a chicken run, just looking for a bit of fun, and getting caught in the wedding frenzy of the yearning bride-to-be,
Can you tell how he feels by the look in his eyes?

I had so much fun making this quilt, and it drew quite a few smiles and comments hanging at the NQF exhibition back in March.
Thanks for stopping by!
