Here is the latest quilt in the Structure series: this one is about 50" square. I have had the urge to work in shades of red, and have one more red quilt that is big, waiting to be quilted. Here also is a picture of some of my dye-discharged pieces. It is interesting to see what color it ends up to be. I like the straight lines the best, and used some pieces in two quilts I have done recently.
I have been busy sewing bindings, hanging sleeves and labels on some quilts I made recently. Both of these are about 35"-the top one has some fabric that has been dye dispersed using a bleach pen, and the second quilt has more of a swirly quilting, to contrast with the straight sewing lines.
This ColorForm quilt was completed at the beginning of November- I am getting behind in showing my work. It is about 50". I wanted to show big shapes, and I like the way some of them are not solid colors. I have been enjoying these newly dyed fabrics that are not quite solid colors, probably thanks to the fabric dyeing class I took earlier this year. (thanks Candy!) Shapes and colors are what my quilts are about, and I think using fewer colors lets the shapes get noticed.
I have been trying some new things, and will get pictures of them up soon. I have some bindings to finish up, and more pictures to take-a goal for the week!
As a musician and fiber artist, I see melody in color, rhythm in shape, and harmony in the stitched lines that join them. I hand dye my fabric to create my own palette of colors. These colorful, textured fabrics are cut by hand, without a ruler, and sewn by machine to create abstract art quilts based on simple shapes and unexpected colors.
