How did that happen?
Wilhelmina Barnes Graham worked in a variety of styles, re-visiting old favourites on many occasions but of all her pieces it is her line series that I like most. This piece in particular - the use of space, the colours, the intersection of the lines all say gorgeous to me:
And then with this in mind I wandered off and created something without the colour or the intersections and my own take on the space:
And what was in my mind, rather than the work itself, also lead to this 9" x 7" stitched Journal Quilt for our Quilters' Guild CQ challenge:
What I really need is the confidence to produce something as sparse as this:
but this then begs the question why fabric?????
