I have spent the last few weeks finishing some quilts and submitting to exhibitions. I don’t want to post photos of the completed quilts until I know their fate, which may not be for a month or so. I’ve also started on a few that I want to submit for jurying, so, since I am not ready to post those either, I thought I would show you some of work that I completed this past year.
In Construction no. 6, I combined fabric that I marbled with a modified photograph I took of the sky and mountains in our yard. I converted the photo to a black and white image, added a touch of blue in the sky, and printed it with pigment inks on cotton fabric. The marbled gray circles reminded me of underground rock formations, so I continued that theme as I quilted the piece. By quilting the background in a simple grid pattern, the quilted rocks that tumble from corner to corner became more prominent, giving movement to a linear design that might otherwise be too still…from the studio
Love it, love it, wonderfully done.
Thank you. It was one of those pieces that came together just the way I wanted.
love it when that happens!!
I like it!
Beautiful! Your one of my favorite artists!
Thanks, Ginny, and thank you for following my blog. Sue
Stunning – I love the contrast of the contour stitching on the rocks combined with the grid pattern! =D
Thanks so much. Your classes look interesting. Sue
I love the texture! I think I`m going to try my hand at something like that, as I`m a crafty geology minor (business major, for the curious)
I like this piece, can’t stop looking at it! Very beautiful and inspiring.
Thanks so much!
Thank you, both for the comment and for visiting my blog. Sue
