It measures about 36 by 36 and I am not going to quilt it yet. I might add another to it but the next in the series...My parameters for the study: play with one block or motif and manipulate it as many times as I can stand it. Don't need to necessarily like the outcome but just work the motif. Each piece will be individually cut freehand with the rotary cutter-just like this one. Looks like floor tile to me ... oops I said no criticizing it , didn't I? I will show you these along my way.
Also, I am on Work of the Week #2. Parameters on this project:
1. 4 per month measuring 8x12.
2. I will start with surface design techniques.
3. Again, I don't need to like it, just experiment.
4. Start with a plain white "canvas".
5. No starting it over-finish what you start with.
6. I may or may not show you them.
That's it. I will document on the back what I liked and what worked.
This is actually the back which I liked more than the front-the way the paint seeped through the quilting lines.
The front was painted AFTER I did the quilting lines with some Jaquard paints I had in my drawer.
Odd I know . I am not a painter and don't like the colors or my paintstrokes...oops again...what I do like...what I do like....
I LOVED stitching first and applying color second. Positive is better and makes me feel like I learned something. I guess I need to work on critiquing rather than criticizing my work. That might be the most painful part of this process. Ongoing and forever I guess. Critique rather than criticize.
Off to weed, shop, drive and go to a cross country meet. After I put my hands on some fabric for awhile!
Happy Sewing, my friends!
