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|
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...
An interesting piece, very spring like.
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!
