But as she was a quilter, sometimes the view affects how one works, and her work started to reflect her vision... So the NEW view, became a quilt.
|Cheap Hotels, 2009, Victoria Findlay Wolfe
Using up all her scraps, (moi) that were stuffed into a box for a rainy day, the girl (moi)
improvisation-ally and intuitively, began "making fabric" from the bits, and cutting here and there, and adding an d BUILDING until she had a finished product...
then something even more disturbing happened...
More workers and cranes appeared right outside her window...
and eventually her new view is now this...
Now one could be sad by this, or happy,
depending on how it affected your property value, or your LIGHT...
OR, one could deal with the view and build, (like the building) yet another quilt...
The new view is not as exciting as the old view, and in fact, the LIGHT does get refracted beautifully into the girls studio. So she may whine a bit,but only just a bit...
When one needs inspiration, one just needs to....
Look into your neighbors windows!
no no no, just kidding... ( well sort of)
Just look outside...
So the NEW CHALLENGE is to:
Make a QUILT based on some sort of ARCHITECTURE.
I'd like to ask that we make them all a certain size...
24" X 30" vertical or Horizontal...
(Only because sometimes size makes you approach your fabrics differently!
And maybe we can do something FUN with these afterwards...)
you must have a REFERENCE PHOTO to work from... (POST IT HERE)
Contain some scrappy MADE FABRIC somewhere in the quilt.
Comment here if you are in!
Once you have your Inspiration Architecture image, Please POST your image here.
If you do not have posting rights on the blog,
you can email me your image and I will post it for you.
I know many are busy,
but many are keen to have a new challenge...
I set the date for July 6th for finishes...
only because I know some need a deadline!
I could set up a linky at the deadline date,
to all those people who want to participate...
Perhaps, I will bring in a guest judge again ,and we can have a mini display of these
with a few gifties to those who participate...
Only to those who participate & finish the quilt...of course.
I can't wait to see what you find to inspire!
So, once more:
24" X 30" vertical or horizontal
MADE FABRIC inside the quilt.
work improvisation-ally, on intuitively
*post your PHOTO inspiration
