Welcome to the tropics...
The problem is not lack of ideas as I wanted to interpret about 6... One morning as I had my first cup of coffee I went to youtube to see what meditative drawing was about. As I listened to Cher talk of mindful drawing, I pulled out some scrap paper and my new pen set and started doodling. Layers of colors in lines produced this...
so I thought, as one does, what if I used threads like I did pens? and this happened...
|paper on left, finished quilt on right|
I started by tracing the "bones" of my sketch onto tear easy stabalizer, layering backing, peltex, top fabric and tear easy, then thread painting the bones before pulling off the stabalizer
then chose about 30 colors of rayon and metallic threads to start fleshing it in
Oh what fun!
the answer was like my inks layer the colors giving them depth
I'm not sold on one coconut but didn't want three...
I looked back at the drawing while quilting until I said, done! And did a thin binding top and bottom, and facing on the sides, the final design decision in a 6" X 10" piece of sewn art
|look at all that thread on the back!!|
It's nice when it works, no?
I also pulled out some yellow scrap projects for the RSC color this month...
heh heh... it's good to have a flamingo stash, when you need a yellow piece for this sweater. I'd like a sweater like that
these blocks have been on the wall for months, so I sewed (made it work) many together, matching them to the endless diamond from Deb, to start my larger quilt with several star log color combos to come.
Haven't done my round robin blocks yet... not very energetic but Joy enthused me to sew again after our zoom this week.
that's about it folks!
