....was put forth by Barb Forrister. After discussing for a while, the group decided to add a pop of blue and a pop of lime green. We were to make blocks, any size, quilt them, and then expect them to be cut up and arranged to make this quilt. The only problem was that we had no idea of where we were headed when we started. Sometimes it is like that. You have to trust the process. And so we all began experimenting and playing with black and white. Here are my results.
I began with some shaving cream and black paint. The blobs were so interesting! Then I used a toothpick to pull the paint and Voila! I had jellyfish! The quilting enhanced their subtle forms. Just LOVE these! Sadly, they did not make it into the quilt. This block had been misplaced in my studio until just last week. However, I am happy now that they have been found!
Next, I wanted to try some paper laminate. I thought it would be perfect for this challenge if I used newspaper. Here's a closeup. This one was not selected for the quilt. It hangs in a happy spot in my studio, as I just love it too!
here. I think only the center one was used in the group quilt. As for it's negative (the bottom image), I don't really know where it is.
Here's a photo of the very beginning when we started throwing our work up on the design wall and trying to decide what to do with it.
