I have been hurrying to finish a small quilt that I thought was due on June 1. Turns out it isn't due until July !! Nice feeling to be that far ahead of schedule. This is the piece I just finished for the SAQA auction.
Interestingly, several weeks ago I was reading blogs and came to fellow 12 Diane Perin Hock's photo of the black and white rooster she had just finished. I was so surprised to see it because I had the plan in my mind for my own black and white rooster, using black and white print fabrics. I think I have mentioned before that Diane and I seem to often be working on a similar wavelength! I quickly closed her blog and vowed not to look at her piece again until after I finished my own rooster. I didn't want to be influenced by choices she had made for her rooster. Now that I go back to see hers I don't think they are that similar, but I love hers! Just goes to show that there are only so many ideas in the universe, but two people can interpret the idea in two different ways.
I really like chickens, and your rooster is great! I would not see your and Diane's pieces as similar - yes, both are roosters, but it's just a different feel.ReplyDelete
The rooster is awesome -- I am amazed at the detail. As I am still "new" to quilting, how did you determine the pattern? I can't tell if it is paper piecing?ReplyDelete
Really, really nice job! Love it.ReplyDelete
I love this piece, Terry! You did a really great job on it!ReplyDelete
They are the same, but different, and that's the fun thing about art. I love seeing how different artists interpret similar subjects. It's part of what makes 12x12 such an interesting group.ReplyDelete
So true to life! Don't show this quilt to the rooster, he will start fighting it.ReplyDelete
I especially like the way you captured the head of the rooster. I think your eye looks better than the real thing. The black-and-white must have been a challenge.ReplyDelete
What a wonderful rooster! And it's very funny that we both had the impulse to interpret that sort of creature in fabric! We are both drawn to graphic images, so I guess it's no surprise that this wonderful black and white and red creature would get us both going! I love your background, too!ReplyDelete
Love him! I like how you echoed the shape of his head and "shoulders" with the mountains behind him.ReplyDelete
