A counterpoint to an elegy

This is more of those sticky pastels, this joins In Hogtown, In Wedowee and In Anniston as part of a series of log cabin quilts representing places important to me. This one is more conceptual: the place and time of my happy and naive preteen years, a small fantasy filled with improvisational impulses and possibilities.
