I woke up this morning needing to get into my workroom and find a piece of fabric I remembered last night as I was falling asleep. It is a piece of marbled fabric in a really earthy, acid-y chartreuse color and I bought it so many years ago I don't even remember where or when, but I have never cut into it. With chartreuse being the 12 x 12 theme color this time around it seemed like this might be the time. I decided to make a small piece today for experimenting. I may or may not do something similar for the 12 x 12 challenge. After all the careful work I have been doing for the big quilt I just finished, it felt great to just start pulling fabric, cutting and playing with the pieces until I liked them. Then, my favorite part—adding a lot of crazy stitching. I wonder if I was influenced by the enormous amount of rain that came down today. I wasn't thinking about it at the time, but now that I look at this I am seeing spring rain.
It was fun to start and finish a playful little piece today. It is approximately 6" x 12"
Cool- very modern.ReplyDelete
I love the crazy energy in this piece. You can definitely feel that something big is about to happen, just like spring!ReplyDelete
Oh My. I thought it was BIG. Like 24 by 48. Isn't that something? And it's tiny. I like it very much.ReplyDelete
I love this piece. You are a wonderful artist.ReplyDelete
Wonderful piece! Wish I had that kind of creativity...something that looks so good just from playing. Love it!ReplyDelete
This is wonderful- it could be a inspiration for a bigger piece- love all the circles and lines!ReplyDelete
Spectacular!!! I absolutely love what you have done and the color choices are lovely, I like the freedom of this piece!ReplyDelete
It makes me smile! :-) Thanks
I love what you did with the other fabrics on this yummie chartreuse, and the circles and lines!ReplyDelete
It is a very inspirational and freeing process you used.
I love this -- what a great use of the marbled fabric. The colors of the fabrics you used really bring out the colors in the marbling.ReplyDelete
I love this piece. Also, a technical question: what thread size and stitch length did you use on this?ReplyDelete
Oh, I just saw this on 12x12 and left a message there. I love this quilt. You are an inspiration!ReplyDelete
OK!This can not be. This is sort of what I had in mind for my piece - very Klee-ish!ReplyDelete
It is refreshing to see something so unique. I love it.ReplyDelete
Love it! Sometimes you just have to do a fun, playful, small piece to take the pressure off.ReplyDelete
The whimsey in this piece is a delight, Terry.ReplyDelete
Now that your rain has come down here I really FEEL the piece!ReplyDelete
Aahh, Terry, you are so good at this!ReplyDelete
I'm in awe of what you can do so casually!ReplyDelete
This is a beautiful piece! I love the lines and movement within the work. Keep up the inspiring creations.ReplyDelete
What fun! I noticed it immediately in your header and was hoping for more information on it. Thanks for sharing your method with us.ReplyDelete
PS - It seems Japanese inspired too - all our thoughts and prayers for Japan, spoken or not!?
