After touring the Memorial Art Gallery, I chose O'Keeffe's Fungus and Jawbone to use as my inspiration to create a small art quilt for the MAG's show and sale in January.
I was attracted to the neutral colors and spare, simple shapes.
I started by making patchwork fabrics with close color values.....
....And started adding in more shapes and colors.
But I didn't think the composition was looking very interesting.
So my "slashing" rotary cutter came out :-)
and more patchwork fabrics were added.
But maybe the composition would be more balanced with a little orange fabric added.....
And this is the final version -- quilted and bound and ready to be delivered.
I like the orange squares, which add the touch of color I wanted without creating more linear elements. (Cutting and sewing the squares into the existing fabric was a fun challenge!)
