who has visited me here for a little while knows, that I write about my mental state from time to time.
I have been looking for a possibility to incooperate my feelings and my personal and emotional characteristics into a quilty project.
After I had the improv quilting class with Lu Summers at the Fat Quarterly retreat ( Which was awesome by the way!!!) two weeks ago, I knew how to start. Next thing I did, I ordered some more solids from stoff und stil a not so pricey online fabric shop based in Denmark.
And here is the thing:
I wrote down some emotions/characteristics, which I deal with more or less often.
For every one of them I closed my eyes, thought about that emotion and waited what forms and colours would appear in my inner eyes. Then I scribbled these forms down and wrote down the colours.
For every emotion I want to make a 12" block, using several improv sewing techniques (some of them I learned at Lu´s class). If it is going to be a quilt later or a instalation of quilted squares, I don´t know yet.
I just found the idea of dealing with emotions from another approach quite interesting.
My first block was made yesterday evening and I would be interested if you can guess which emotion I had in mind.
Please leave a comment if you have and idea!
