Three Small Pieces

These small (5 in square pieces were done prior to last week's featured piece after I heard about the call for 5x5 art pieces.  The first two are 5 in square quilts and the third is a 5 in square quilted postcard. This first one was made using a scrap piece of fabric reminiscent of the 60s/70s.  I machine quilted pink, green, and yellow pieces then machine quilted it. 
This one is machine appliqued and quilted also.  It was inspired by swimming near dawn in the open pool at my local athletic club while practicing my back stroke.
This one has the stiff Pelon stabilizer that makes it a postcard.  It is inspired by love of Matisse art work.  In this case the Blue Nude though mine is done as a pink nude on blue background.  It is machine appliqued and quilted.
All of the pieces have small triangle pieces on the back to allow easy hanging if desired.
