|A sneak peek into my yearly journal of work. All of my brainstorming is on the left, sources of inspiration, drawings for ideas - especially in working with a theme, for The Alliance for American Quilt contest. My inspiration was a photograph of my friend Leslie Jenison and myself at Festival in Long Beach with pool floats on our heads (we like to have fun wherever we travel). |
The theme is "Alliances: People, Patterns, Passion" and the quilt is 16" square. I actually thought about doing a photo transfer of us with the pool floats on our heads, but changed to creating my own work of art with commercial cottons and Batiks (patterns) with she and I as the main subject (people) and our desire to stay in touch via "coffee breaks" via e-mail (passion). You can click on the photograph to make it larger. Dedicated to women friends, which are Highly Prized! A full size picture of the art quilt and detail shots are on my Twisted Sister blog.
