So, here's my weekly quilt, above, and the collage that inspired it, below. "Rites of Spring" ~ 12/52.2009 is made entirely with handpainted or printed fabrics. There's a freshness and immediacy to this piece that I particularly like. It says Spring to me, fairly jumping off the design wall to be admired.
The collage began with a "waste" sheet of paper that I printed spirals on after having printed a few on another collage. So here you have cleaning paint off the stamp, liking that and making more impressions on a sheet of paper, using the paper in a collage, being inspired to create a quilt based on the collage, and stamping fabric for the quilt. I love how one thing spawns the next. So organic.
