Moths And Woman Warrior

I worked on this quilt all day.  I ripped out more stitches on this quilt than I have in a long time.  This first part was easy.  I wanted to float the fabric with the moths on it and the woman warrior without boxing them in.

What came next took the rest of the day.  Even as I sewed what I thought was my last piece of the day, I ended up ripping it off and sewing on something else.

At the end of the day, this is what it looks like.  It doesn’t look like it should take half a day to achieve, but it did.

I have no idea what comes next, but so far, to me, this quilt looks like it reads from left to right.

  1. The addition of the fabric on the left adds a rich and delicious complexity to this quilt. The mid blue, green, and gray tones zing in relationship to the jewel tones of pink and lift up the hints of blue in the butterfly fabric. The large concentric circles give the eyes a place to rest before moving back to the tiny details in the remainder of the quilt. Not sure if that makes sense to you, but the addition of that strip was the spark of genius. Someone is going to be very happy with this quilt.

    1. THanks Donna, It does make sense and I do know what you mean. I kept wanting to see circles and I agree it is just that mix of fabric that helps make it work.

  2. Oops, the hints of blue not in the butterfly fabric, but in the paisley, but you get what I mean. The brown in the fabric on the left works in the same way to lift the hints of brown elsewhere. Very interesting so far.
