What an idea!
She doesn't seem pleased with the crow in her garden, does she?
(see the whole quilt here)
And another. This one may be my favorite.
(see this whole quilt here)None of these is the background that I am actually working on for this quilt, but this little exercise was both fun and enlightening. What I learned is:
- Boy, my color palette is sure predictable.
- Almost anything is a better background for the bird than what I had.
I love all of them but especially Mt. Hood with the crow although the egg doesn't work on that one. Lots of fun. Great idea Becky.ReplyDelete
You crack me up!!ReplyDelete
That was too much fun!!ReplyDelete
now you need to do like 17 birds...ReplyDelete
I thought this was the intent of the flowing grasses from a few days ago!?ReplyDelete
I love this. What fun and I especially love the look on the girls face.ReplyDelete
Excellent! What an amazing, fun thing to do.ReplyDelete
What a HUGE difference that makes!ReplyDelete
A landscape works perfectly, IMHO.ReplyDelete
Wow what a great idea! Finish the edges and make several backgrounds and then you could change the background every time you change your mind. Just kidding, but I think your sister really had a great idea.ReplyDelete
You go, gurl! (Sorry to be unauthentic ethnic, but it's still early, at least in my befuddled head).ReplyDelete
This is really fun trying your other quilts as background. I also have to say that I would never have thought of cutting out the background and making a new one. I'm looking forward to seeing what you end up with.ReplyDelete
Also, I have a fellow blog friend who would really appreciate the lady gardener with the crow in the garden!
I love these and especially the Mount hood ...the crow could be showing the egg where he might grow up.... fav colorsReplyDelete
The bird with the gardening girl adds a whole different perspective, and is quite amusing to me...the tone of her face even changes, as if to look down on the bird...ReplyDelete
love this. could be a start to a whole new interactive series.ReplyDelete
What a great idea. With the series of photos you have, it seems to me that the bird is looking for the perfect spot to keep his egg...ReplyDelete
and hasn't quite found it yet.
Grat fun. Your work is so beautiful and precise and this adds a spot of humor for sureReplyDelete
Believe it or not, back when you were thinking about cutting down the outside, I was thinking, cut out the background. And here you've done it! I like the Mt Hood background the best - the perspective of being slightly above really comes out. Or maybe it's just that the mountain is my favorite of the backgrounds, regardless of whether the crow was superimposed on top.ReplyDelete
that was fun! looking forward to seeing what the actual background will be...ReplyDelete
Oh, thank you for doing that! It turned out even better than I had imagined. I think I like the geometric background as well. It reminds me of the King's counting house (where he's counting all his money.) And, well, we know what the crow is planning...ReplyDelete
What a great exercise. To my eye, every one of them works, each in its own way.ReplyDelete
