I guess this is a modern quilt too. I love stripes, and I always thought a quilt made from just squares of stripes would be attractive. But once I did it, I thought it needed more, hence the circles. Now I like it!!
Having fun doing something a little different!!
Its a different take on Rob Appel's Ribbon pole quilt.
Henry Miller, prolific writer and painter, had these words to say on getting your work finished.
If groggy, type notes and allocate, as stimulus.
If in fine fettle, write.
Work of section in hand, following plan of section scrupulously. No intrusions, no diversions. Write to finish one section at a time, for good and all.
See friends. Read in cafés.
Explore unfamiliar sections — on foot if wet, on bicycle if dry.
Write, if in mood, but only on Minor program.
Paint if empty or tired.
Make Notes. Make Charts, Plans. Make corrections of MS.
Note: Allow sufficient time during daylight to make an occasional visit to museums or an occasional sketch or an occasional bike ride. Sketch in cafés and trains and streets. Cut the movies! Library for references once a week.
I have always been an artist and with art quilts I have found a way to combine my two loves of painting and textiles.
