Last Fall I took a class from Melissa Averinos (She's in the center of the photo below, holding a corner of her quilt).
And now I must confess: I was bored. I was very bored in class and feeling like maybe it was a waste of time. We were covering basics that I know extremely well. And then I decided it was up to me to change my attitude. Sure, I already knew face proportions and how to cut pieces of fabric into collage shapes, but I could still learn something, couldn't I? And so I decided that it was up to me to challenge myself to work outside of my comfort zone. And so I did.
I made four fabric collages and, as you can see, with each one (from top to bottom) I took more risks. I tried more weird or bad choices. I pushed my color choices. I played with proportion and reality. I had fun. And I learned some things. Yay!
Of course, these are meant to be quilts, so I took them home to sew...
Thanks for stopping by!
