|the process of choice making|
(One time I made a Hoffman challenge quilt in one week, including mailing to CA, and it won a prize!!)
I can do it! ( I hope) This project is part of an ongoing study of great artists of the past, and this one is Frida Kahlo.
I made a watercolor sketch of my idea weeks ago, see it at top of photo. I found the quote I like, chose the mistral font and printed it out to check for size and orientation before printing on fabric. I decided to use the paper instead, right on the quilt. I cut it with my pinking sheers.
The poodle will be purple with thick black threads quilted in wavy lines, and some yarn for unibrow, prismacolor pencil for shading.
The piece is to be 12 inches square like all the others.
I believe it is possible to finish, because the van is at the shop getting expensive repairs so I can't go anywhere. It's bitter cold so I am not tempted to walk too long. I am driven when in the middle of an idea. I must pull myself away from my current obsession of a bight tumbling block quilt though.
