first day at school

I was a bit too quick when I posted my haiku last week as at that time I had not yet translated the haiku into a piece of art. I'll repeat my haiku here so that you do not have to scroll down:\

A first day at school
Numbers, Letters, they call you
No more time to play?

This haiku inspired me to make this journal quilt:

At the moment it is only fused, I have not yet had time to stitch/quilt/bind it.

Great piece and I like your interpretation.

I am not really satisfied with it, but I will finish it. Also I intend to make it on a bigger scale - 20"x20" - because with that size and shape I can position the letters and numbers in a more playful way.

Very nice Wil, and can just imagine how it will come to life with quilting. Great job.

This IS a fun piece! I like your use of color. And your haiku brings back those "first day of school" feelings which everyone experiences. Very nice.
