i had to put all of that aside for a bit when i launched Project Catwalk.
Once that installation was hanging I could get back to this project and make my very first paper quilt.
Not having ever ever done something like this before, and the fact that I taught myself I am feeling proud for what this became.
One one side is all the original inspirit-form collages cut in 1/2
On the other side are these high gloss seriously brightly colored fashion pages
Once laid out on my friends studio table
i was able to decide order
Thank goodness for her huge table!!
i decided against one quilt
and went for three hangings instead
I also decide to keep the integrity of each original collage
all be, they are divided.
simply because visually that made more sense.
once i got it all into the machine
it got a bit wieldy
i just super excited by how it was coming together.
i will say that the perfectionist in me
wanted to tear it all apart and redo the seams.
but then when i hung it all up over my bed
i just thought
look at that.
i made a quilt.
first time and all
I decided it was just super as is.
last december i submitted the idea of this to a gallery
a juried group show was announced.
when we all met to discuss the theme of the show
each of us had our own unique contributions
but similar making stories
epic some of them.
I am beyond honored to be a part of this group show!
