Just finished, quite literally, the binding for this beauty, #8 in a series about communication. Here’s my artist statement for this piece:
“This is the 8th quilt in a series that explores visually how we communicate verbally. The vibrant colors resound with life, chatter, happiness, and hope. They work with equal vigor to combat the angst, sorrow, regret, and moments where we wish we could take words back. These forces are often squaring up in opposite directions. The use of scraps in this piece represents our thoughts, words, and feelings, during the course of a single day. Choose your words wisely to prevent Misdirection.”
Finished it’s 54.5″ w x 55″ h, and I LOVE how this turned out! Thanks to Ruth McCormick for getting this done in a very timely fashion!
On to the next project, and this one will probably not be very large, but I fished this squares out of a box from a workshop and am going to try and do something interesting with them.
Until next time, make something beautiful!
