|Red Striations © 2013 Linda A. Miller|
"Red Striations", 12" square, was sparked into being by a challenge from the President of the Quilts on the Wall art group of which I am a member. The challenge was to use at least 5 different reds. You see here the continued exploration of the striations theme in reds. The appliqued layers are couched with yarn. Hand embroidery is added for final details. Using one color can create a striking image. It is always interesting to see what others came up with.
Also at the meeting, there were about 20 quilts submitted for the "Maps" challenge with a variety of amazing interpretations. I did not participate in the challenge this time. However, just reflecting on the maps idea has influenced current work in progress. Funny how that happens. You never know where inspiration may show itself. It remains up to us as artists to be open to receiving that inspiration.
