Ring Don't Ring by Sidnee Snell 24/32 inches / 61x81cm
With every challenge I try something new. This time is was whole cloth quilting on a printed piece of fabric that I designed. This piece is derived from previous work I have done that features the same telephone.
I converted the color of a previous quilt into grayscale and re-arranged the elements ever so slightly to fit the size requirements. I had it printed and then quilted it.
I had it printed and then I quilted it.
Although an interesting experience, I'm not sure that I'll repeat it. I missed the challenge of identifying the 'goldilocks' pieces of fabric to appliqué in just the right spot and the feeling of watching the image develop color after color - almost like watching an old polaroid develop after coming out of the camera.
I do have at least one more experiment to execute that starts with a whole cloth image. Maybe I can combine the best experiences of appliqué with the best of whole cloth?
