Today we are taking a break from the Making Do and the Zombie Apocalypse and Power Outages.
Let's take another look at how we can take our art quilts to another place, tell another story.
You ready to embark on this new challenge?
OK...I gave you a hint earlier this week. This one is not only outside the box...it is over the box.
I love to think of/find other things to do with my art quilts. Different ways to use them, to present them.
This story started years ago really. There was a very interesting post of FreeCycle (You'll see later what it was) that, as an artist, I just couldn't pass up. Had NO clue what I would ever do with it but I just HAD TO HAVE IT!! I'm sure none of you have ever succumbed to that particular temptation! I brought the booty home and it sat in a box in my studio and eventually in the garage...just biding its time.
It hit me a few months ago what I wanted to do with this wonderful acquisition and it all started to come together in my head. Now to find the time to figure out how it could work and the time to just do it! Well, when I finally decided on the topic for this month, I knew its time had finally come. So especially for you, never before seen!
Here is the fabric I started with. A pounded paint fabric that at the time I thought still needed some work. However, it is perfect for this project just as it is.
