This all happened in a Master Class at Quilt Surface Design Symposium. Rosalie Dace from South Africa was the teacher. There were only 8 students so we really got to know each other, the creative process was certainly free flowing and the freedom to work without worrying about the lawn, garden, meals or cleanup was wonderful. I have two strong pieces to work on in the next month.
Stage one the photo
Stage two the background
I originally thought I would do the words Draw! Shoot! Bang! as moveable parts that I would attach as embroidered pillows that could be added and subtracted but I thought it might be gimmicky. There was a lot of changes and additions of jeans, patches, old quilt parts, etc.
Next time I will show a very different piece that I can't wait to work on.
