One More Try

It really is pretty, and you can’t tell. I have taken a few more photos and done a few tweaks.

It has such dazzling glittery threads, that just don’t show up in photos. To illustrate the differences

between the actual quilt and the picture of the quilt, I made a list

60 MPH Sunset I finished the quilt.

So I did the unthinkable, gasp, I took a photo from a moving car. In fact I took several photos. After I downloaded to my computer, surprise, my phone took better photos than I expected. Several in particular I really liked, of a row of popular trees lining the highway silhouetted by the sunset. The minute I saw those photos, the first thing that popped into my mind was AN ART QUILT!!! .

Lisa Call -Investigating Boundaries in Abstract Contemporary Textile Art

Lisa has described her work in this way,“I design and create vivid geometric abstract contemporary quilts. Some people call these things art quilts, or studio quilts, or fiber art, or studio art quilts or any number of other terms. I prefer the term “quilts” but it conjures up images of our grandmother’s quilts.

And while traditional quilts are beautiful, they aren’t what I make, so I’ve added the term contemporary to better define my choice of art media. Whatever you want to call them, quilts are my passion. My goal is to become the very best artist possible and so I spend most of my free time making art..”
