Art Day #7

Today is the 7th day of Art Every Day Month. This is my art play for the day, although I may not be finished playing today. This is the little art quilt top I just made. I’m thinking about making it into a “quote” quilt. If I do, I’ll need to decide which direction I want the words to go.

I guess a lot will depend on which quote I choose to put on here. I posted photos of the top in both directions so that I could hopefully see which I like better. The blue looking squares are actually black. Not a dark black, but black to very dark grey, almost as dark as the black splotch on the brown fabric. I didn’t end up with as much of the brown in it as I thought I would and I did put all 7 fabrics in it instead of the 5 I originally intended to use.

The first block or grouping of fabric used was pulled from a bag and used as it was pulled out. Then I decided to try to get three pieces of each fabric in the little top. My favorite fabrics in this top are the ones in the corners, the dark green with stripes and the black. I wish I had a yard of each of those instead of just a fat quarter. The quilt top is 14″ x 16 3/4″. Off to play more.
