Whew! I just learned that the April due date had been changed to June for the “Bridges of Portland–Now” project (link here). With that reprieve, I can work on the piece for the MasterClass on line. The primary assignment was to take an earlier quilt and redo part of it focusing on line. Well, I don’t have a big repertoire of art quilts, and the ones I have did’t inspire any line play, not did the traditional quilts. So I worked from a photo of the bridge I was using for the guild project–Elizabeth had said we could work from a sketch as a second option, so I stretched it a bit.
First I worked with what looks like an observation window near the top–but keeping the idea of the X, though not resembling the photo.
Another sketch that I like better catches more of the structure and ladders.
I don’t have comments yet so I don’t know what will need changing. I’m pretty sure the second is better, though. I’m not overly pleased with the first. One kind of welcome negative comment is a comment that reinforces my judgment about something I already thought weak. How about you? Are there any negative comments that for you are positive?
It would be nice if I could do two projects with one, but there is no way I could use the required print fabrics for “Bridges of Portland—Now” in this plan, which requires solids or stripes. I have a few more ideas for it as well, but am not committed enough to any to cut fabric. I’ll probably use up my “found” time sketching and debating and still be in a rush to finish the piece.
Linking with Off the Wall Friday.
