I have done my best to depict the colors of my fabric art as accurately as possible; however, colors can vary from monitor to monitor -- especially, reds, oranges and purples. As far as possible, I take my photographs in natural light to get the most accurate images possible. All square/rectangular items are square, even if my photography doesn't always show it!

My personal blog, which showcases many of the quilts and other fabric pieces I've made, is http://rhondabracey.com/category/quilts-and-fabric-stuff/
