Seuss Over You

NEW QUILT END OF !ST DAY

I just felt like goofing with crazy wild quilting the other night. I have these fluorescent Superior threads that were calling my name, ” Come out and play!”. Then there were these wildly colored fabrics… I don’t use my stash much these days, use my own painted/dye fabric, mostly silk. These prints, so insanely color saturated they must have simply lost their minds, were screaming out too, “USE ME YOU Fool”, rude yes, but what could I do? This fabric is not, I repeat NOT dress fabric! Here’s how it went. Cut and fused the first day, began free motion that same evening. Here’s my progress so far. Will it pan out into an actual quilt? We’ll see, time will tell??? It is an explosion of color for certain.

End of day 1, cutting and fusing shape finished. Beginning freemotion.

Update on progress. 9/15/2013 [ psstt, a few days later.]

As I’ve continued to work on this, it has taken shape. I’ve made progress on the free motion applique, getting all those loose little edges tidied up. I’m having fun with the free motion quilting/embroidery. I have continued to add layer after layer of colored thread and it is beginning to make me think,”Seuss!!” rather than an “explosion on color.”

When I began work on this, my working title was “An Explosion of Color”. Now I’m thinking more along the lines of Dr. Seuss, “An Explosion of Seuss?” or maybe “Seuss Over Youse?”, that’s it. The working title sounds so Seuss-ish. I do believe this has become a actual art quilt, not a doodle pad. “Seuss Over Youse”.

Suess? Definitely.
Seuss? Definitely.

About Myself & My Approach I come from a family filled with many artists.s always played a role in my life, in one form or another. By my teens, I had narrowed my focus to painting.I decided I was going to become a serious painter. I joined the Las Vegas Artist's Guild, at 15, the youngest member at that time. I was totally out of my league, a kid among so many serious adult artists. But to be there, exposed to art in that way was quite an experience. I was enraptured, soaking up. I tried to go unnoticed, just a fly on the wall, mute, a big ole smile plastered on my face. soaking it all up. I tryed to go unnoticed; a mute teenager, eyes wide opened and a huge smile plastered across my face. I’m pretty I was noticed, a mute kid with an enraptured look on my face. I've continued to paint throughout my life. On occasion I've sold my work, but I had more important priorities, one being raising my wonderful children. My circumstances have changed, the kids grown, I had more time and Art was like theorpy for me. I was introduced to the world of quilting & fell in love. I did miss the creative freedom painting afforded. Then I discovered mixed media fiber art, I was home. MY APPROACH TO ART It's the creative process that holds the greatest attraction for me. Starting with a tiny seed of an idea; vague and blurred around the edges, I follow where that leads. My approach is an instinctual one. Generally, I do little pre-planning. themselves, my appproacj response js an instinctual one. This approach can lead to quite a few changes in the direction the quilt takes. The outcome can come as a surprise. I love that element of surprise! Sometimes everything just comes together & I think this is one of my better ones. I can’t wait to show someone. I feel like a six year old, running home from school, a drawing in hand, excited to show Mom. At those times. I'm smiling like the Cheshire cat. I’ve had work published in several magazines., which is gratifingvl. But the most gratifying thing is having clients be really happy with their purchased quilt.

    1. Denise, I add my layer of batting and often a stabilizer as well, when I think that a lot of stitching will be needed and don’t want that much thread buildup showing. I like to disguise it as much as is reasonably possible.
      Save some work for the quilting that’s needed once the back is attached.
