Hoo Knows? AP # 77


While attending Pam Beal’s class Minimalist Design, Maximum Impact,I began a number of small art pieces. Some of them have already been shared.

Blue Door, AP # 66

1973, AP # 74

X’s and O’s, AP # 75

Wise Old Owl, AP # 76

Today’s small art piece was also started in that class. Titled Who Hoo Knows?, AP # 77, the quilt measures 15×10”.

Who Hoo Knows?, AP # 77

Keeping with the theme of minimalism, this petite specimen has a limited color pallet. The soft minty teal (how’s that for a technical description) adds a pop of color that grabs your eye and draws it toward the center.

Of note are several special embellishments. Except for the zig-zagged raw edges of the sparkly grey fabric the rest of the quilting was hand stitched. Added for surprise elements were three teal and black beads along with a sassy, teal owl. The colors of the items were chosen to mirror the minty fabric frame.

Naming this mini quilt proved to be a challenge. Often times a name will come to mind while I am creating my art. In this case I wasn’t inspired until I added the owl. Given the difficulty I had in choosing the name I decided to select Hoo Knows?. Hoo, because of the sound associated with owls and the added owl bead. Knows, because of the phrase, “Who Knows?” I know it seems kind of corny but that’s ok! Who cares!

Hoo Knows was added to a background of black fabric. A layer of Warm & Natural batting is sandwiched in-between. To the quilt’s raw edges a binding of matching black fabric was added.

What do you think of my latest art piece?
