The Silence…

was deafening. I got  no really positive feedback on the collage I posted last night. As I sat in the dentist’s chair this morning, I knew what I had to do. I needed to add more color and get the sweep of linear design elements more organized. I also decided to add a tiny border of one of the turquoises.


Here is a detail:


I will take this to STASH tomorrow and stitch down the binding.

The SDA piece is on the sewing machine, almost done with the quilting.

    Knowing you were away and thinking you would want to rest when you returned I haven’t stopped by in a while…but like others have commented you are running and getting it done! You changed the angle of the blue thin strips and it strengthened the design…prior it was kinda going all over in many directions it felt.

    Keep on keeping on!

    That one snuck by me and I get to see both posts at once. Yesterday, I would have said that I really like the colors. Today, I am even happier to see what you’ve. Bringing the linear elements together and tying them to the background with a little color improves the piece greatly.

    I like the addition of the other colors and of course that fabric is very yummy.
    Lovely design Gerrie. Noshi ribbons

    Mixing up the blues with other hues makes it much more dynamic. I like the new asymmetrical arrangement, too.

    Sorry I didn’t comment yesterday. Wednesdays are like that. I will say that I find the piece much more dynamic with the red and gold strips wending their way across the piece. You’ve added a diagonal line with them and really increased the movement as well as giving the eye somewhere to rest. The border really unifies the piece. Very nice!! I wouldn’t mind seeing a shot of the whole thing, with a bit of wall space around the edges. Somehow tightly-cropped photos make it more difficult to really see the flow of the whole work.

    It looks great!!

    Sorry I didn’t comment last night to let you know how much I liked this piece. (I was just so happy to listen to a president who knows what a subject and verb are and actually had substance in his message that time got away from me!) Now, I really like it! The addition of the golden and red strips interwoven with the turquoise, really unifies the colors and creates a nice flow. Well done Gerrie!
