Last year, when I made a small art quilt, to send to SAQA’s Spotlight Auction, I couldn’t decide which one to send so I asked for your help in deciding. Although there were differing opinions, the majority chose the one that I was leaning towards and it sold. This year I am having the same problem but with my 12″ x 12″ piece for the Benefit Auction. My head is spinning from trying out different backgrounds and foregrounds so, before I begin any stitching or fusing, I am going to ask if you would be kind enough to help me out again. The inspiration for the piece has come from a journal quilt that I did last year where I disintegrated the rose spiral. This was the 8″ x 8″ piece
The backgrounds for the current piece are silk noil for the first three in each group and a silk habotai for the fourth. The orange ‘rose’ is silk, the black ‘rose’ is cotton and the lime ‘rose is silk noil. All will be fused to the background and then quilted. If you have time I would really appreciate your opinion. I have given each one a letter and number to make it easier.
Ot the alternative is to go with this one which is already finished but wasn’t intended for the auction!
I would like to be able to take it with me to Portland next week when I go to the conference rather than have to post it. leaving things to the last minute as usual.
If you find time to comment, thank you for your help. If you don’t then I won’t be offended.
Have a good week
