So, I think it's done. I think that the quilt is done. Maybe. It sort of has to be. I'm dropping it off at Simplicity headquarters later today.
Here's the base in progress:
It's canvas that I painted. It's quite stiff after being painted, but since this is going on a wall, it doesn't really matter. And now, here are some details of the finished quilt...
And the quilt itself:
The assignment was to use Simplicity's bias tape maker and/or rotary cutting machine in a creative way. I made a few quilts that I think were more "creative" about the way they used the products, but I didn't like them. They just didn't feel like me. So, in the end, I decided to be myself. Always a better choice, right?
It's colorful and collage-y and personal. I think that's where I'm at right now with my artwork.
The winner of the challenge will be announced at The International Fall Quilt Market on October 11. I am very much looking forward to what the other designers came up with! I suspect that most of them are far more traditional quilters than I am. And I think it will make for an interesting group of quilts!
P.S.: Just got an e-mail from Somerset Memories requesting a layout for publication! Yay!
Thanks for stopping by!
