"Inspired by" - The Series
Why wait? Well, I wasn’t feeling inspired. :o(
Based on a piece of art by Brazilian artist Beatriz Milhazes, I drew up my design weeks ago, but I didn’t do anything with it…until this past Saturday! (If I missed the quilt show, I was going to have something to show for it!!!) The challenge deadline had come and gone. Now my mind was clear enough to begin what ended up as a series of quilts:
I began by making one the size of my drawing (done on a napkin!) and stepped it up a little bigger (and then a little bigger than that.) My pieces measure 2" x 3", 3.5" x 5.5", and 8.5” x 11". Basically, that's a business card, an index card, and a piece of notebook/computer paper! They were done with fusible applique, but I’m not sure where I want to go from here. Any suggestions?
To see the inspiration piece, look for:
Acrylic on canvas
78 3/8” x 54 3/4”
Until next time...
