Not a winner! I really think that group is so stilted by the fact it is an ART quilt that they just need to have a traditionally pieced quilt. A pieced heart sewn on to a SWEATSHIRT won over my piece! And a Mardi Gras block. Geez.
Here it is. Don't you think it is wonderful? Say nice things to me.......I need it!
I used the colors of the table and the dress in the binding. I didn't want the glaring red to interrupt the flow of color off the piece
The chair! I love the way the chair came out. It looks like wood even. You know it is a wooden chair she is sitting in.
She is rich, see her huge diamond! I used gold for her chain, I wanted a heavy chain but light enough to not overpower the diamond.
Her dress looks puffy, like she is in it. I could have quilted it more heavily but I liked the look of her body in the dress.
Here is the original Matisse called Lady in Yellow Dress. And yes, it took me a few minutes to realize that I had not flipped it, hey, that is probably why they thought it was not good!
Anyway I think it is good. And I got paid for the presentation!
Anticlimactically - what does one do next? Maybe this one.
Or maybe this one..........what do you think?
I am hooking up with Nina Marie and the Off The Wall Friday gang, go check them out and see what other great stuff is happening today.
