Here's a shot of an in-progress quilt sitting on my work table.
I worked on it for hours and hours and hours over the past couple of months. I previewed some sketches in this post.
I was making it to enter into a new exhibit through SAQA (Studio Art Quilt Associates) titled A Sense of Adventure. I was quite inspired by the SAQA exhibit in Houston this past fall and I felt like I should try to step up and enter. Of course, this means creating work that fits the size and theme requirement AND has some value through an artistic eye.
I ran into some bumps in the process and eventually concluded that it had lots of problems. I realized I would not be able to lift the quilt out of its medocrity before the deadline, so I folded it up and began work on a quilt for another deadline.
So it goes.
Then SAQA extended the deadline. Now I have a second chance to revisit it. I think I can look at it a bit differently now. It was helpful to put it aside for awhile.
