Whoever finds their life will lose it, and whoever loses their life for my sake will find it. Matthew 10:39
So as I look over the large stacks of quilts I have accumulated. I have decided to create wearable art clothes using my vintage quilts. Many believe that quilts that are vintage should stay as they are. But I believe if I am an artist and truly want to expand my art I need to show others the beauty within the textile art world. So I have decided to use I few of my quilts to create clothing items.
In the same way that quilts are fashionable for your bed. Those same quilts can be fashionable for your body. Here below is an example I have a very stylish and hip bomber jacket.
If you would like to make a jacket for a completed quilt just go for it!
Gracious words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones. Proverbs 16:24
Help I need to sell! Are there days when you feel like the world is just coming in on you. And there’s nothing you can do right. You try your best but it seems like everything just fails. In those moments I always revert back to my go to.
Sewing is where I go when life is just not going my way. When I need a little break from everything. As you can see in the above slide show I love fabric, I love color, I love the textures of fabric, I love the feel of fabric. Fabric makes me happy. Some people love food, dancing, TV, Game shows, but I love fabric. Working with fabric brings me joy it also allows me the time I need to figure out many of life’s complex decisions.
In this week I hope you are able to go to your happy space and do what brings you comfort. I know that I will be selling at sometime someplace during this next week.
In my distress I called to the LORD; I cried to my God for help. From his temple he heard may voice; my cry come before him, into his ears Psalm 18:6
Proximity is one of the five basic principles of design. How close or how far or in wet alignment are the elements you’re working with arranged in your design? Are you thinking about proximity? By grouping similar elements together or in a close proximity, you create a relationship between those elements. Proximity also works with providing a focal point we’re giving the reader an idea of where they should focus their attention.
When I am creating I understand the proximity doesn’t mean at the elements have to be placed together, it means they should be visually connected in someway. I can use size, fabric colors, or shapes. The following picture as an example of proximity.
I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has given me strength, that he considered me trustworthy, appointing me to his service. 1 Timothy 1:12
Good morning all it’s Friday. Who do you follow is there particular designer, fabric manufacturer, or blog that you follow. I noticed that there’s no one particular person company or thing that I follow. For me I follow what my senses tell me I should do or create in any given day. For me my leading comes from God. When I wake up in the morning I always start out with a to do list. While looking over that to do list I get inspiration. From the inspiration I’ve been and guided towards a particular pattern, fabric, area of my studio in which I pull different items to start my creation.
So for you how do you create who do you follow? Here are a few of the inspiring patterns that I will be creating in the near future
The gatekeeper opens the gate for him, and the sheep listen to his voice. He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. John 10:3
