"Now that's a hat!" Interpretations in Black & White
Quilt Visions is one of the wonderful local groups that I belong to. QV has an upcoming small quilt exhibit this winter called Interpretations 2009. It's unique because each member is required to submit a 12" x 12" black and white piece. This work must use only black and white colors; gray can also be used. When I saw the size, I thought cool, although I'm extremely busy, I can put something together to meet the deadline. So, I came up with a b/w Drunkard's Path block featuring another portrait piece with an b/w ink painted rendition of women wearing a crazy pillbox sequined hat top with a gray feather and veil. I call it " Now that's a hat". I just love, love, love the small quilts size. It takes me more time to visualize and plan, than to make the actual 12" squared quilt. Check it out.
