Yesterday's Art Every Day, Wednesday, July 17, 2013.
I made this yesterday - I promise I did! But when I finally got around to posting it last night at home we had no internet. Thank you Century Link.
So, here it is today.
I was trying out a 'quilt as you go', flip & sew technique for the videos I've been shooting this week. I began with gray batting sitting on black linen. I ripped a bunch of strips from some fabrics that I painted several years ago. I simply sewed them down with slight curves and wonky angles through the batting and backing then flipped them over and pressed then added another piece.
I really like the bits of golden yellow. They add liveliness to the otherwise neutral palette. It was great fun to use these painted fabrics and it makes me want to use more of them so, yet again, I've come across something in my dailies that I want to do larger. Oh, if I could only manufacture time!
Back in five,
