I spend way too much time browsing on Pinterest, but sometimes it is just the thing to get my juices flowing towards quilting or painting or cooking or decorating. Here is a lovely example of something quilted that made me gulp. It is no surprise that I love stripes and this beauty says it all for me.
Note to self: It doesn't have to be difficult or complicated to be fabulous.
This is a small piece, 18x24"-ish, but can't you see it as a larger work, like 60x80"?
I am always attracted to the tilty look of Gee's Bend quilts. And the YELLOW. So happy and sunny. No fear in this work, right?
A painting yes, but such a quilt design too. Dark and murky colors, but the layout is what gets to me. Just sew up some strips and join them to others and soon a masterpiece is made. Of course no one says you have to stay murky.
Another painting, which would be a great quilt. Notice the turquoise which jumps out of the orange? So warm and thrilling. Another simple construction, done in chunks of solid colors.
Diagonal stripes! Woo. I'm jazzed.
Best use of Kaffe Fassett striped fabric. Big sections of stripeyness, accented by HSTs. True love. Sigh.
But I am still knitting, so I will just collect inspirations until my arm gets too sore to knit for a while.
