The Challenge: "Have you ever had a situation about which you formed an opinion that was later disproved? … What was it like? How did it feel? I invite you to consider one of your past preconceptions and depict your experience in an art quilt."
This challenge stumped me. Even though I had a couple scenarios and memories to draw from, I could not imagine a way to put them into a visual design. So instead, I decided to use the process of making this quilt to challenge my own perceptions.
I'm a planner. Especially in the studio. I never cut fabric or start sewing until I have a vision of what the completed piece will look like. (or at least what I hope it will look like).
This month's challenge, for me: create a quilt in such a way that I'd have NO IDEA what it would look like when finished. The result would a surprise to me, and maybe the viewer too.
So how did I end up with this? Read more about my thought process and see more artists' responses to the eighth Viewpoints 9 creative challenge: http://viewpoints9.blogspot.com/
