Usually I do analysis about my topic, however different instances I merely develop a detailed feeling with the creature I’m making. In any case, the story informs the choices I make within the creature itself and within the background I resolve on.

Primarily based on a wooden block print by Albrecht Dürer, my quilt “Tickled Pink” represents a breakthrough in how I deal with colour. I’m typically requested why pink? This week’s TBT submit explains how the concept was generated by recognizing some fabulous material. It goes to point out that inspiration can are available some ways.

“Tickled Pink,” or “Albie” as I name him, has been on show in London as a part of an exhibit of quilts utilizing Kaffe Fassett materials. The exhibit, The Energy of Sample, is now touring to Edinburgh, Scotland. Two of my college students, who met in an internet class, shall be visiting with Albie and the remainder of the present. One lives in Edinburgh (strolling distance from the venue) and the opposite occurs to be visiting Scotland through the exhibit dates. I hope they ship me pics of their outing! (trace trace)
