Actually, a change of the the colors of life–the bright, vivid summer greens,yellows, and bluesgive way to twinges ofburnt oranges, rusty reds, andtawny yellows…The air becomes crisper, cooler…the daylight has a noticeably different look to it. I am reminded that nothing in life ever really stays stagnant, but continually changes, either quickly or very slowly–but, surely!
In the studio, today I am quilting the Lifeweavings #3 piece. The loose fabric strips have been a challenge to hold in place, even with many pins.A better method may have been to use a fusible batting and iron the two layers–the woven top and batting–together before stitching.
Progress is also being made on the yellow flower. Here it is on the design wall as I fill in the design.
Pinning the pieces in place has worked the best for this, though I am undecided whether to piece a background for it or to add the background pieces around the centered flower?…do I turn the edges or leave them raw edge?…making these choices along the way is all part of the design process.
I am slowly creating new art in the studio… Just asAutumnis slowly changing the colors @ us and life moves on into a new season…
*What is Autumn like in your part of the world? What meanings does it hold for you…?
