Nancy Crow's Book Arrived!!

I have been awakened from a dream. I can see clearly now!
I NEED MORE RED AND BLUE AND YELLOW.


oOOOH Stripes are NICE!
No filly fallying around here. Eh? Elegant and SPARE.


Truly I must dye me some blue and real real RED.

Some of Nancy's quilts are HUGE like this one, at 53 x 89.5" and some are as small as 7x9".
If I didn't just tell you that this one above is that large, would you guess? Now imagine you are in a room where it is hung vertically. Pretty high ceilings, yep.
Marla Hattabaugh quilted most of the pieces in this book. I wonder how that works, financially for her and Nancy, both.
It's a mark of the strength of Nancy's personality (and OF COURSE the quality of her work) that she has convinced Marla to continue to collaborate with her over all these years. Even for money I don't know how I could hand quilt that many pieces. ...ibuprofen.
I wonder how many of the quilts in the book have sold or where they are stored. Storage is such a big issue when you have made over 300 quilts. Yipes. The girlfriends talk about this all the time, like do we really need to make anymore quilts, since they are falling off the shelves right now...When you see the entire career of one artist in a book like this it overwhelms, clarifies, and motivates.
I have put away the paints.

And went into my files and made this collage of Stacks #6, in various colorways. This could work into a series...

    I thought you said yellows reds and blues?

    Anyways, you are just as good as Nancy IMHO so don't start feeling intimidated, and you were already always red, yellow and blue.

    Score: Germany/Sweden 12mins in the game....2-0

  4. So by going into your files, I'm thinkin' you did the Stack #6 in the different colorways with Picassa? I guess I'll go dink around with Picassa for a while!

  5. Yup I used Picasa2 and the tuning tool, then saved each and made the collage. I wanna try new colors with this simple design. I dyed up 48 (1/2 yd.) pieces this morning.

  6. I love the stacks collage. That's a photo, right? Not a real quilt? But I love it...the repetition really works for me. I just got Nancy Crow's book too and am swooning over it.

  7. Melody, I am inspired daily by your energy, creativity and wisdom! Please don't ever stop blogging!! I will admit to not being as familiar with the body of Nancy Crow's work as I am with her name recognition. I love stripes and my favorite color theory exercises in class involved stripes and Joseph Albers exercises. I need to pull out the fabric and use it instead or Color-Aid!!

  8. Hi Melody - I love stacks #6. Of all the quilts on this entry, this is the one that speaks to me.
    Please tell me, when you do the checkerboards, are they actually woven strips, or are they placed squares? Is there an entry on the blog that describes the process?
    Please keep this blog going. It is an inspiration. When you talk about knitting, or painting or gardening, or dyeing, you encourage my quilting and my dyeing - my gardening, too.
    Thanks...

  9. See, now I'm going to have to get this, and Mrs. Mel, I re-read your Lazy Dyer recently and I'm ready (yikes) to start trying to dye! As soon as we stop having "wrath of God" thunderstorms here!

  10. It always amazes me to see books in which one quilter made all or most of the quilts. Writing the book would be time consuming enough, and writing a pattern for even one quilt. I imagine people slaving away day and night trying to meet their publishing deadlines. How much time do you get from start to finish, and how many quilts do you have to make or have in that time period?
