Over a year ago, my friend Kathy and I joined an Art Quilt Guild in Lubbock. The first meeting we attended we made a wonderful black/white top. I don't have mine finished to show you because I am not sure what exactly or how exactly I want it to be. It was a lot of fun to make and just to be sitting in that room with about 14 other art quilters was inspiring. Then, with the scraps and other things we made a couple of other projects. This is one of the projects. I used the leftover cutout pieces from my black fabric and made some more of that pattern in other colors. I put it on a lime green background and there it was for almost a year. A couple of weeks ago I decided to make it into a quilt. I had fun quilting around the edges and off the edges. It is bound in dark purple and is about the size of a sheet of paper. (I don't have exact measurments.)
One of the assignments from that day was for strips and one shape. I made this next quilt top and invisioned fish swimming among the reeds and seaweeds in a lake. Everyone else that saw it just went, "yeah, that's good." They couldn't see my vision. After I quilted it, my friends thought it was wonderful. Of course, now you can clearly tell that those black blobs are actually fish. It all makes sense now.
Okay, I can't make this picture turn the way I want so just turn your head to the left to see it the way it is supposed to be seen. It is also about the size of a piece of paper.
