Thoughts and process:-
This is the last week home in the studio for a while.
I considered doing a block to represent the "Tour down under" bike race that passed through our town on Thursday, but somehow this photo jumped out at me and I thought I can add another quilt to the aggie series.
I still have the sketches of the bike race, so I just might add them
I'm still undecided on the background fabric… it probably should have been plain with less definition.. however, I can make it work..
Creating this blog is like putting together a jigsaw.
Beginning with the piece that is the in the background first…. one tiny piece after another, I've built it up.
The green fabric is a graduated fabric from Mckenna Ryan. The purple is horrid… but the only color I had in the stash to match… the reason I say it's horrid is because it is a little open weave, and it has a white back… which means I have a "halo" of white on the edges…
Then again, the way the light is hitting the flower, there is a halo surrounding the image… so I think I can make it work.
