It’s Growing…

14 Jan

My take on the curves of Escher’s distortion grid has grown into some colour.  I like the way the black and the waves play on my eyes.  It’s fun to see how it changes just by adding colour or changing the orientation of the lines as I sew.


I’m not sure where to next, so it sits on my design wall for me to ponder.

Until I feel ready to continue with it, I got my dyes out.  Looking forward to seeing results…


Be speaking soon.

    Ahh–you’re an ARTIST! How do you get your quilt to lie flat? QUILT THE CRAP OUT OF IT!! Yes–I had one that had “boobs”–each block was a perfect cone shape. all 30 of them!! Here is the link to a picture–yes–they did quilt flat–with a little forcing.

    Loved the mask wall hanging!

    Your distortion grid is awesome! With the red and blue added to black and white, it reminds me of a wonky Mondrian painting. So Escher meets Mondrian!

      Absolutely, I thought exactly the same about Mondrian. I then went onto google images to see if Mondrian ever got wonky with his grids:)

    Very interesting project. I love the movement of the quilt. I’ve never heard of Escher. Is it a design or pattern that can be purchased??

      Look up Escher in Google images – he was an artist but liked to use grids to distort and change his images, Fantastically mind bending.

    Your project is progressing nicely. I agree that the blue added a nice touch of color to your composition. You are inspiring me to get going on some of my more contemporary projects that have been sitting on the sidelines..
