All is Revealed!

It's that time again: the 15 x 15 International Art Quilt Group Reveal is UP!

This year we are each working in a series based on a theme of our choosing -- a theme used in a prior year.

My chosen theme is "Time/Seasons" and I've been working my pieces out in abstract, mod/improv techniques.  Here's my latest offering:

Agnes Meets Judy in the Spring
(C) 2017

Here's a detail shot:

Agnes Meets Judy - Detail

Materials: self-dyed cotton fabric, commercial cotton and poly-cotton fabric, hand-dyed silk floss, cotton thread, 80-20 cotton/polyester batting.

Techniques: flip-and-stitch quilt-as-you-go by machine, big-stitch hand quilting.

For the story behind the title of the piece, I invite you to visit the post HERE.  Enjoy!

Linking this to WIP Wednesday on the Needle and Thread Network, because it's been a very long time since I've done that!  :-)

Have a great rest of the week...

HI Margaret

I am so honoured that you have mentioned my name in context with one of my muses, Agnes Martin. Thank you for your respect and love.

I think that this piece is really beautiful - it has the calm palette of pastels that Agnes Martin appreciated because for her it seemed closest to those ideas of perfection and innocence that we have inside of us - almost child like ideas of love. And I would say that those big stitches are what Judy offered.

love you and hope that we shall some day meet.xoxo

I feel peaceful, happy, spring-like when I view this piece. Congrats on a very successful abstract!
