Thirteen of Sixteen: Court House Friends 13, AP # 58

Thirteen Finished

I’ve been on a mission to reveal my recently completed art pieces. Last week we took a look at number twelve Today’s post features project number thirteen.


The process used to reinvent this mini original art piece was virtually the same as number twelve. All of the design features,

  • the cut apart/rearranged center panel,
  • the white inner border,
  • the perky blue batik with its leopard-like print,
  • the dimensions,
  • as well as the quilting

are similar. So similar, in fact, that one could say they are fraternal twins. The only difference is the slight variation in the colors of the center panel. These two peas-in-a-pod will make great side-by-side companions in my home.

  1. They were twins. Almost, but not quite, identical, they grew up with a loving bond, but desires for different things in their lives. They shared so much, and yet there were things they could never share. Sometimes, their parents wondered, “How could they have the same genes, the same environment, and yet not be the same?” It was true. They marched to the beat of different drummers. =)

  2. I like the two as a pair. The negative space of the white reads as part of the art rather than the mere ‘austerity’ that is often associated with its use.
    As always, I enjoy your posts/photos/process – Thanks for sharing!

    1. They do make a great pair and I agree with your assessment of the white fabric. Thank you for pointing that out. I’m thrilled that you find my musings to be interesting! Thank you for your very kind compliments. 😊❤️
