It's 4th of July and I have a day off for celebration.
I have on my Un-Australian T shirt….with the American flag on it and blue shorts today…. they go well with the pixie slippers.
I worked a little on the book this morning, preparing more illustrations and it's exciting that it's getting close to completion.
It's humid and warm here and I love it so I'm sending some of it back home to family.
I have several classes to prepare and I wanted to ask the question…. if you wanted to make a "Journal Quilt" what subject would you use?
How would you make it…. ?
You know how I make mine.
I find it hard to interpret some folks idea of a 'Journal Quilt…' because I can't get into peoples minds….and two pieces of red fabric on white is supposed to be blood on snow….!!
I sat through a whole lecture on journal quilts once and saw 48 quilts, same thing… blood on snow 1, to 48……
Not my scene really.
How would you interpret the subject?
We can learn a lot from Impressionist artists… Monet, for instance did 40 paintings of the same thing, just so he could capture the image in a certain way… testing, testing and adding more to capture the essence…. in fact it was a journal of what he was seeing.. and making a journal quilt is similar to me….
