expect nothing, appreciate everything...
I count my self very lucky to have a group of textile artists in my town that are as passionate about making things as I am AND I really appreciate this group.
If you have been following my blog, you will remember that my Art Quilt Group had a crayon challenge last year where we would randomly select three crayons out of a box of 64 Crayolas and create a 12 x 12 art quilt using just these three colors.
This year we have chosen to diversify our monthly challenges; for the month of February, our challenge was to use complementary colors. Below are the results:
First up is Diane being inspired from a class she took from Gwen Marston. I didn't get a get photo of it, but her binding is yellow halfway around and purple the rest of the way- it was very cool!
This is Doha's; she is off to a great start, but tells us that a big knitting project has been the priority for her this month.
Jackie created this wonderful feather stamp from etching on a Styrofoam plate; I love the movement of the hand stitching.
This piece was created by Jenny; this is her first attempt at beading and I must say she is definitely got the knack for it!
June has taken her hand-dyed indigo fabric and coupled it with burst of orange. Her binding is sari ribbon and yarn twisted then stitched on.
Mary also used a Styrofoam plate, but stamped with bleach to get the effect of a stone rubbing. It really stunning!
Lastly, this is mine. I decided to do a modern quilt; I am pleased with the outcome.
In March, we are working with usual materials...the material we are using are netting bags that hold fruits and vegetables in the grocery store.
