from “Quilts in America” by Patsy & Myron Orlofsky, 1974.
Over the last 6 months, I have been receiving “Artist’s Magazine” Each month it provides interviews with various types of artists and lots of thoughts about creativity.
I loved this particular comment…..
This can apply to quilting as well….. instead of making a “flower quilt”, how about making a “petal” quilt or a “sepal” quilt???
Now I need to start looking at things in a different way!!
I friend sent this article from the Washington Post and it is worth a read……
It is such fun uses of traditional quilt designs!!
If you have 30 extra minutes….maybe when you are on the elliptical at the gym…. enjoy this documentary about the making of batik fabrics……
It makes me want to head to the fabric store!!!
Back in 2011, Michael and I enjoyed spending a week in Thailand with two sets of friends that we knew from Australia. We had 2 days in Bangkok and the rest of the time in Chiang-Mai. While there we visited an elephant preserve and spent many fun hours there. The post about the day can be found HERE.
As we were wandering around enjoying all of the amazing animals, this little guy did a ballerina pose for the camera…..
He has stayed in my mind for many years and I think that it might be fun to make a collage quilt using”Ballerina Boy” as the focus. Who knows, I MIGHT even go out of my comfort zone and do him in non-traditional colors…..but don’t hold your breath about that!!! I mean, they call it a “comfort zone” for a reason!!!
