O Yeah, I Remember

O my.

The strip sets sewn by Michael James are what spurred my purchase of all those jelly rolls.
I love how they look on the table in the first picture. He did all sorts of fancy cutting and lining up of the strips (way tooo much trouble for me).

 So fabulous... I truly appreciate them. I just want to have the strips in a line on a bed, which even that is daunting....all that strip sewing. Ugh. Lazy is my middle name. But the subtle color change of the strips, so alluring. If and that is a big IF, I must not just use the 2.5" strips, but will cut some 1.5" and 2" so that I am not even tempted to line up one band of strips with the previous one.
I have nothing to prove. (repeat if necessary).
His newer work has very cool layouts and is totally unlike the previous style.
Speaking of layouts, the collage work of Lisa Hockstein is tremendously inventive. It's salvaged paper, but easily translatable into fabric.

Layout can change a traditional looking quilt into an artquilt....just like that, snap! With collage, the white paper's edge makes all the difference.
I'm just sayin'.
I just put all my newest QAYG quilts in a chest of drawers and had a big sigh of unresolved discomfort. I don't want them hidden away, and need a display cabinet. More furniture.
I am hopeless.

  1. Thank you for the links to such inspiring work.

  2. Wow, his work has changed! Loving the newer stuff!

    How about leaning a ladder against a wall then hanging the quilts (folded somewhat) on the rungs? I love that look, and it's a great way to display a bunch of quilts without committing to much!

  3. I have one of Lisa's artworks and I was thinking how easily it could transfer to fabric. But the old paper has a nice "feel" to it.
