Art Every Day, Monday Sept 16, 2013
Boy it's been a long time since I've started a post with that salutation! Feels good to be done with today's piece so early in the day. Here she is, I began with a bunch of warm colored squares which I set on the only battingish thing I had here at home, a piece of dyed bamboo felt in a light, light red orange. Then I grabbed the cool colored square in a square block that was left over from some other project.
Prior to adding the pieced square, I stitched down all of the warm colored squares of fabric using dark orange thread and a small stipple. Then I positioned the pieced square and stitched it down using a bright turquoise color of thread. I added four stitched squares for a total of five squares.
I really like the cascading movement of the squares from upper left toward the lower right as well as the warm/cool, dull/bright contrasts.
Now I'm going to do a quickie house cleaning then enjoy an afternoon out with a good friend,
