I’ve been busy busy trying to get some of the projects I’m working on finished.
Been out of touch, too much going on, my head is spinning. I’ve been working on 4 quilts, one of which is for a friend. That quilt is first in line. I’m having fun working on it. The other 3 can wait, they’re for my Etsy shop.They’ll get there.
on a number of quilts, been a bit preoccupied.
Banish the Dreary Doldrums, Bring the Color of Spring inside. small changes can create a big impact
Been busy last few months. Now I’ve caught my breath, I’ve started a new art quilt.This one is an abstract.
Do you want to stand out in a crowd of people dressed in black? Wear white.
Contrast can make an impact.
Strong contrasts make things stand out, they are noticed immediately, commanding your attention. A strong contrast will intensify the impact cf the contrasting items. What this brings to my mind is an image of a elderly woman with bright dyed red hair pulled into two pigtails, one on either side of her head.This all goes to show how memorable contrasts can be.
Now getting back to this particular art quilt, a stained glass window wall-hanging. it was a fun quilt to work on. I tried to make it look like a realistic stained glass window. The tricky part was to how could I create the illusion of light behind the panes, subtle, without it looking too obvious. I definitely didn’t want shafts of light shining down.
A few posts back, I mentioned an unfinished project I had restarted. Was I just having a little free motion fun? Or was I seriously considering this a legitimate quilt? Was this my guilty little pleasure, like some low brow TV show that you enjoy, but would never admit it?
This is a floral art quilt, but I wanted to add a contemporary spin, a little non traditional. So I chose to give the flowers and stalks a disproportional profile. As my husband observed , it would be how the world might look to a little bug as he looked up at the huge world. hat’s a Wrap http://wp.me/pZYTG-3ar Here is the contemporary art quilt I’ve been working on
Here’s a peek at a new art quilt I’ve started. I’m going to call it 60 MPH Out The Window’ I took several images from my iPhone and used them as the inspiration for this wall hanging.
This in my latest art quilt, “Lunar Eclipse”. I thought an lunar eclipse would be a cool idea. The silk background that I painted was dark blue and purple. I played around with metallic paints and applique. I had my little fun time and this is the eclipse I ended up with.
