Most of you are familiar with the work of Kay Sorensen (Quilts+ Color) as well as her recent exhibit, 'Florida Ice', which is on display downtown Ocala, Fl. Well, even this master of creating fabulous fabrics will have some pieces that just aren't up to her standards. Thank goodness for us...at least for Beth and I! Kay bequeathed us each a 'dye dog' (that's Kay's term for fabric that wasn't up to par!) to do something with it. No rules...just play! And play we did. This is both our pieces together!
We met for lunch yesterday to show Kay what we had created with her fabric! TaDa....this is Beth's handiwork! I love it!! As I said the colors in the fabric pic above aren't quite true and this is evident in Beth's piece. Lovely!!!!
blog post here) at Beth's, along with Nancy and Kathy dyeing fabric from tissue paper. I'll be showing a post this week on that day on some of the results. Until then, check out Beth's flower colors!!! They are beautiful...and she did a great job on the composition for the piece!
And up next, my project....I'll be doing another post on how I ended up creating this...until then.....the areas not quilted look very wrinkled because I squish it to put in a hoop to do my hand stitching.
I love hand work and have lots of stitching left on this piece but I'm very happy with it so far. I think Kay was also a bit surprised at what her proteges created!
Also, I was fortunate to receive a piece of Kay's art work for taking pictures at her opening reception! How lucky am I! Check it out!!! It's the positive and negative Kay quilted and put into a dual frame!
Thanks for the challenge and your artwork, Kay!!!
