Tips, Thoughts and Techniques:
|I'm nearly finished with Deconstructed Sunrise.|
Just 10" remains of the binding to stitch in place.
|I started Deconstructed Sunrise #2 this week.|
I need something less than 100" square to enter in a
Wisconsin Visual Artists exhibition. I find working
"small" very difficult.
OK, I am never completely without a goal as you can see by what I accomplished this week:
1) Continue the finishing work on Deconstructed Sunrise - Done!
|One advantage of working small, though, is that|
it works up very quicklycompared to larger work.
I designed the basic structure on Monday. The next day
I pieced (actually turned under and fused) the fabric.
One more day and I had begun the quilting.
2) Free motion quilting practice. - Done!
Actually, I did quilting practice and not FMQ practice as I worked on my newest piece, Deconstructed Sunrise #2.
3) Post the number of days I have worked in my studio in 2015 - 58.5/126
4) Perform a random act of kindness - Done!
My goal for next week is to accept that with all that I have scheduled outside the studio, my studio time will be greatly limited. I will work on the following with the time I have:
|I am loving the gentle contrast between the photo|
of the sunrise and the fabric it sits on. There is just
enough black in the trees to allow the photo to stand out.
It was strategically placed to provide a focus
point for the eye.
1) Continue the finishing work on Deconstructed Sunrise
2) Deconstructed Sunrise #2 (Due August 25, 2015):
- Finish quilting it.
- Decide whether additional embellishments would help?
- Start the finish work.
3) Free motion quilting practice.
