Finding the Muse in tiny pieces of fabric #10
I am however trying to find my way through the days, and trying to return to a love of art.
This little abstract was quilted before I said goodbye to Cole. I needed to be around people so when I went to my sewing group on Monday, I took it to bead.
This piece finishes at 9" square.I was inspired by the smallest of little batik scraps. It shows why I like odd shapes. Some people like to cut all scraps into squares and strips. Not me. I love the serendipity of the odd shape, the line created with a gentle curve. The surprise as colors are repeated at random, then create a scene... to me this is the forest floor, with flowers.
Also notice the lovely leaves given me by a bee mate. I originally wanted two words on metal bits, "wander" and "peace" but while moving beads around on the finished quilt, allowed myself to change my mind. They did not add to it, so I changed direction.
