This is the first blog I’ve attempted in the new web page format. I can’t do too much yet because my wonderful computer guy is still configuring it. Bless him. The blog is called “I am Pam Holland” Just in case you need to know!!
The “Capture and Create” page will be created in a magazine format and there will be a shop, photography page, video, eventually classes and lots more.
So let me share the quilt shown below. I haven’t decided on a title yet, maybe you could suggest one?
The fabric I pieced in the background of this quilt was a small give away pack from Carolyn Friedlander. These are some of the photos of her fabulous work that I photographed at Market in Houston. I love the graphic simplicity of her designs.
The bird is one I found printed on fabric… it was in a throw out box somewhere. “Oh, I need that” However, I could have drawn my own bird… I do have lots of designs in the sketch book. I re-colored the detail in black pen and then quilted it with 50 weight black cotton. I’ve begun to quilt the detail in Carolyn’s fabric and the red fabric was a hand printed piece of linen I bought in another scrap basket. The tree is drawn with black pen and “illustrative quilted” and the jolly pot that he will stand on is there to balance one of the orange squares considering the background is red. I will illustrate this too. This is a quilt I can do when the whim to be creative temps me. I can put it down at any time and then pick it up and work on it in mindless creativity. I think you know what I mean.
