This is due this month and I haven't even started. My first thought was do do something similar to the two quilts below. Use a lot of black and white prints, pieced together for the background and insert skinny strips of one bright color. I'm thinking red.
|8 1/2" x 11" Made in Jane Davila's Art Quilt 101, several years ago,|
as part of a Hens and Chicks series
|"Fractured" 12" x 12" Made for an Ugly Fabric challenge (the ugly fabric was that purple polka dot) and put in the SAQA auction where it sold.|
|Looking from one end of the table.|
|And from the other end.|
Then I separated them into categories.
|Equal black and white. Oops! Now I can see that the middle one in the bottom row |
should be in the white background pile.
Or do I just want to use one gorgeous print and do no piecing, other than the skinny inserts.
|I really love this one, but not sure if I have enough.|
|This one's pretty cool, too.|
|And then there's this one.|
Fortunately this does not have to be be big. The maximum size is 80" perimeter and the minimum is 48". I'm thinking of making it 12" square and then I can use it for next year's SAQA auction.
I have so many things to complete before I take my annual March vacation (Hawaii this year!) I should just lock myself in my studio. I plan to be in all day tomorrow. Let's see how much I accomplish. Stay tuned.
I got to see my article Thursday night in the In Stitches E-Mag and I must say that it looked pretty good. I'm in very good company wth some very interesting articles and art work. I can't wait until I can have it for keeps on my new lap top.
