The Spiral workshop yesterday with Karin Lusnak was so inspiring and I really enjoyed her lecture at tonight's PVQA guild meeting not only about her quilts but her sculptures and perspective as well.
I don't mind that the curve is jagged although I'm anxious to try again (and again) playing with the magical third cut that determines the swoop of the swirl. Creating our own personal text fabric was really unique and a great way to connect with the piece and process.
Originally I thought I'd just choose a neutral background and fill around the shape I had made in class but then decided to continue the spiral. Blocking out my target size on the design wall helped tremendously. Finished size 21"x26" this will hang in my Sewing Room.
Each fabric has a different FMQ, swirls, bubbles, woodgrain... it got pretty tricky in the super narrow areas but I just kept going. The center jewel fabric made an encore appearance in the binding.
Endless options. No surprise... I feel an addiction coming on.
