Art Piece 93: Red and Teal, A Study

I enjoy sharing my art work. May, 2019 is the last time I made an effort to update you on my accomplishments. At last count, I have almost 100 items to share. Don’t worry though…I will not introduce you to all of them today.

Red and Teal, A Study is the name given to a project I worked on early in 2019. One of my long-distance friends needs a little nudging to keep her artistic mojo going. To assist her in that endeavor she enlisted my participation. The plan was to select a project for us both to work on independently, which, in the end, just might give her the incentive to participate.

Being easily inspired to create art with fibers I found the challenge invigorating. Following the guidelines outlined at the beginning of each month I set out to add another finished item to my portfolio. She, on the other hand, floundered.

Measuring 47 3/4” x 31 1/2” Red and Teal, A Study, Art Piece # 93 was the fruit of my labors. Using only 100% cotton fabrics I utilized the required red, and teal colors along with a few additional specimens. This is my finished product.

Plans for 2019

I like to sew.

A lot!

Sewing brings me joy and keeps my creative mind engaged and happy.

Being a multitasker, I often have more than one project going. My design wall is currently home to my unfinished VFW Double Wedding Ring

My Double Wedding Ring Quilt

and

a Storm Star Quilt.

My Star Storm Quilt

Both are awaiting quilting.

My smaller design board displays the building blocks for one my latest improv quilts.

This is another in-progress art piece. This one was started during a Heidi Parkes class I took at Blue Bar Quilts. Here’s a sneak peek.

Central Park, AP # 96

In multiple plastic storage tubs are other items waiting for my attention. Some have been started while others look the same way they did when I brought them home.

During 2019 I’ve made a personal goal to work-on and finish as many projects as possible. Many of my unfinished items have been gathered into tubs. Those tubs will be taken to a February quilting retreat. I know that I have packed way more projects than I could ever dream of completing but that doesn’t upset me. Having more than necessary gives me the opportunity to adjust my focus if I get bored.

Even though I have a very long list of items to complete it didn’t stop me from adding several more. So far this year I have added:

Victoria Findlay Wolfe Off the Cuff Block of the Month

A Different Box of Crayons Bricolage Block of the Month

An EPP project

and, last but not least a block of the month challenge (see my Red and Teal photo above) with one of my friends.

2019, like all other years, will be an amazing adventure!
