July theme

The theme for July is: Architecture. This can be realistic, zoomed in on a detail or whatever idea it might give you:-). When I am home again, I will upload the pictures of the last 2 themes to their pages and update the blog.

Light and Dark

This month's theme gave me the chance to use my favorite colors :-), black and white. As I am exploring abstracts, I made another abstract for this theme. The grey is a pounded fabric, the other 2 colors are commercial ones. I admit that I finished this quilt 2 weeks ago, but I have been so busy that I did not had the time to post it to the group. Or leave comments on your posts. Trying to catch up, before I fly home again coming Sunday.

Night and day

This is Hilary's interpretation of the "Light and Dark" theme. It is inspired by the song "Night and Day" hence the music threading a path through the piece. Machine stitched and quilted.

Finally I get to play!!

This piece is for the Light and Dark theme.  I had previously done a piece on paper with printing ink, white paint and Pigma pen called "Directions."  This piece was inspired by that artwork but in the opposite.  I used black fabric, molding paste (which gave it some texture), Pigma pen and white paint (just for the white dots). The title of this piece is....


(the inspiration for the art above) 

Anxiously awaiting the theme for July!!

Tiles 4 ----- to the theme Light and Dark

I use up some motley yellow fabric that I  had painted. I overpainted this with sun reactive paints and used a stencil as my main mask.  I put my painted pieces in the greenhouse so the wind would not disturb my arrangement. I was amazed at how well they came out. By the time I came to print a length  for the border the lovely sunny days had passed. After waiting and waiting I one day rather impatiently  chose what I thought was a sunny spell but as soon as I was ready to take it out the sun practically disappeared. 
I free machine quilted round the motifs. A rather mindless piece but I so much enjoyed doing it. I am looking forward to using this technique on other discarded fabrics and with different colours.

I felt it fitted the theme of dark and light both in execution and with the result.
