I challenged myself with this piece to 1) use some of my tie-dye fabrics, and 2) create a piece that was not a square or rectangle. I let the fabric designs dictate the final shape.
Judy,this is a lovely piece. I would like to make a suggestion artistically. The fabrics contribute a lot to the success of this piece,and could be used a little differently to create a better design. First, I reccomend that you turn the design 90 degrees counterclockwise. This will place the purple on the bottom left and will anchor the design. This gives a sense of looking into a scene. Second, the same purple fabric creates a real sense of "texture". I think that some of this texture needs to go toward the center of the design; possibly created with some stitching in a color that leads the eye into the design.
I turned the original design 90 degrees clockwise and thought that if the purple were shades of orange, you would have created a reflecting pool with parts of the sky visible. could this be a series? Best of luck,... Jim D
I love it! So creative and NOT rectancular! Wonderful!
Great piece -- I also have been working on an odd-shaped quilt and am ready to bind it. Did you just use bias-cut binding and ease it in around the curves? That's what I was planning to do.
