Today's inspiration comes from Sue Kelly. As I've said many times, to be featured in the gallery you only have to use some hand dyed fabric in your piece and Sue used a perfect piece for her art quilt. Here's what she said about it:
"Here is an abstract quilt inspired by my own photo looking out of Golden Canyon in Death Valley, towards the western sky. The name of this quilt is “Look Out”. The edgy, predominant fabrics are by Marcia Derse. The hand dye represents a refreshing airy place beyond the rather ominous walls of this narrow canyon. It also provides an interesting color contrast, and textural variation. In fact it creates a focal point as important as its surroundings! This was one of the “waste” fabrics I won in a drawing a few years ago. Not a waste at all!
As an art quilter, I enjoy working with the huge range of fabrics that are available to us, and I appreciate how your work is often just the touch I need in combination with others, to convey a vision."
Keep you eyes on the blog in August because there's going to be another opportunity to win some of these waste fabrics in a few weeks!
For sharing, Sue received a 20% coupon for the shop that's good for 3 months! If you have made anything with my hand dyed fabric I hope you will consider sharing it in the Customer Gallery. The only rule is that projects have to be complete. It doesn't have to be made totally from hand dyed fabric, just include a recognizable amount.
