Okay, so this isn’t quilting and doesn’t involve fabric, but technically it is paper-pieced patchwork. Ha ha.
Last semester, I took a Fine Arts Visual class as part of my degree. For the first art project, we were restricted to using scissors, paper, and glue to create a self-portrait. The idea was to cut out parts from magazines, which I did not like because I don’t look like women in magazines. I spent the majority of my time making a patchwork paper quilt, and had fun with it. I’m rather pleased with the result. I’m calling it “Soon I Shall Start to Wear Purple.”
In case you’re wondering, I got the inspiration for the background from one of my favorite patchwork books: Spectacular Scraps: A Simple Approach to Stunning Quilts.
There’s not much patchwork or quilting going on today because I’m busy catching up on work, but I thought I would share that with you. That’s the end of my blogging fun for the day.
