OK, my boogie-loving, head-thrashing, air-guitar-playing quilters, how are those Rock On! art quilts comin''? T minus 10 weeks until the due date, so I hope you're jammin' and quiltin' the night away.
We've gotten a handful of entries so far, and above we see Tina Turner stitched and beaded by Bonnie Ouellete of Seneca, South Carolina.
Gotta' give credit for the sizzling hot pink background, the wild locks, the stilettos, the black mini, and of course those babe-a-licious Tina legs. A job well done, Bonnie!
Out of any challenge we've posed, I admit am most eager to see what everyone creates for this one. Wouldn't it be fun to have all of these together in an exhibit with...say... I dunno... some rock playing in the background?
On a related note, this morning (Friday) I was going to take a few hours off to rest up and screen fabric at home; but while thinking about this challenge, an idea came to mind that made me laugh so hard, I immediately went to work and presented my crazy thought to the team. (And honestly it's one of the nuttier ones I've had.) I was nervous that they were going to ban me from the building, but they got it straight away, and we're all so excited to see this somewhat outlandish venture through. (More on this in two weeks, but I hope I have piqued your interest.)
If you're going to join our Rock On! challenge, I'd love to know what musical artists have inspired you, so please post below what band/singer you're going to stitch.
Rock on, people!
