Say that really fast 3 times.
I finished my swap quilt. I have to say . . . this is the first real online swap I've been in. I've done blocks, and I did the Pay It Forward thing once (and got my favorite table runner in the world from Victoria), but never just a swap for a swap's sake. I didn't tell them that before I signed up, just so they'd let me in . . .
I waffled for quite awhile on picking a painting as my inspiration. Then I picked this Diebenkorn one:
Then I saw a photograph that looked like a painting, and wanted to do that, but got to thinking: "Are we supposed to really use a painting? Is using a photograph that looks like a painting cheating?" So I went back to my original idea.
Inspiration is about all I took from it. Some of the basic shapes are there, but I wanted my colors to be a bit more vivid. Why does everything I do turn out DULL in the end? I wanted COLOR. I also discovered that my stash is woefully understocked with solids, because I LOVE prints!
So I landed somewhere in the middle, still not sure that mine is any brighter than his:I hope you like it, Lisa.
