Look at the crazy, chaotic work that came out of my studio.
It's called "She Sits to Dream." I think I surprised myself with this color palette and the intentionally messy construction. I wanted to try to be looser in the creative process. It was a challenge, but fun.
If my dreams are filled with layers and layers of wishes, hopes, ideas and desires, maybe this is what they look like. There is pattern and chaos. Rough edges. Some of the insides are sticking out. It's empty, yet open.
The dreams are surrounded by the potential for growth.
"She Sits to Dream" was my second attempt at a chair quilt. My first quilt was just too quiet. Here is "She Sits to Wait."I liked the composition and the general shapes of the different elements. So, it was fun to covert those elements to different fabrics. In fact I can even imagine doing another "she sits to..." quilt.
Which do you like better?
