I'm not sure I told you yet, but I joined Studio Art Quilt Associate (or SAQA). Have you heard of them? Well, they are a great group for artists that want to play with different types of art quilting. Art quilting isn't traditional and in fact I love it because pretty much anything goes! I'm sure I'll be talking about art quilting more and more moving forward.
So, anyway, SAQA had a call for entry on their site called "I'm Not Crazy" for the topic of mental illnesses (common ones like anxiety or depression, or less common ones, like schizophrenia or multiple personality disorder). One of the questions they wanted the art work to explore was "How does the world look through the eyes of someone experiencing a panic attack or depression or other mental disorder?"
This really resonated with me; I'll explain why another time. It resonated so much that I stayed up late to cut up the zillions of little confetti bits needed to cover the 4x4 foot area. Below is a sneaky peak of it. And yes, Sammy showed her approval by laying right on top of the basted start. Argg! I am in the process of quilting and embellishing this one and look forward to sharing more very soon ... especially since this one is due by May 31st.
And that's what's going on recently in my cozy little sewing room. Lots of inspiration and my ever faithful pup getting in the mix. I can't wait to take a peak at what you are up to this week!
