I am finally back to creating in fiber. After so many weeks of travel, re-organization, and miscellaneous non-fiber activities, I am turning one of my sketches into an art quilt.
Here is an early version of the sketch:
I had Staples blow up some more developed versions. What I found interesting in this process was that I found I gravitated to the larger size for the piece. I have had a number of people encouraging me to 'go larger' in some of my work. And, I could feel resistance on my part. I've concluded that the move to larger size pieces will come as my comfort level grows with handling the larger sizes.
Having decided upon a size for the finished piece, I started playing with fabrics. I knew I wanted to use gradations in the piece. Here were some of my preliminary gatherings.
And, I began playing with delineating my sketch into an actual piecing diagram.
Looks mysterious, doesn't it? More to come later!
