Did you ever look at a piece of art photographed in a book and then when you actually saw it’s real size wondered why it was so much bigger or smaller than you had imaged? Since many of us have a frame of reference that quilts are bed size it may be hard to imagine that many present day Art Quilts can have a much smaller or larger real size. Many of my line pieces start out small and then “grow” as I start to assemble them. The movement of the curved lines across the surface of the quilt encourages me to create more and more of this movement. In Gold Hay #6 the piece grew to a finished size of 60Hx60W inches. Shown below it is hard to tell it’s real size;
Hung on a wall you have a better idea of it’s real size;

So what do you think is the real size of this piece?
