Positive feedback

I got great feedback from EB on my blocked wind turbine quilt. Here is the quilt  (which is small at 12 in by 19 in) and what she said.

“It's a great design - I like the way you've totally pared it down to the strongest shapes..I really like the way you've given the impression of light on the edge of the main blade that we see - that's what makes the piece for me.

There are some really nice repetitions of angles that make it a satisfying design too: the slight diagonals at the top - echoed...and the verticals coming down...good one.  Also all your negative spaces are interesting...I don't see any problems!!  Except it's a pity it wasn't bigger!! you'll have to get into dyeing fabric!!  I know of a couple of good classes!!!”

I did take E’s fabric dyeing class, but still don’t have big pieces of fabric!

So now to get to work finishing this and coming up with a title. I have had several suggestions over on facebook. I also have made a few minor changes to the quilt. When I see it in a photo posted online I see things I cannot see while looking at it in person.

“Wind Power”

“Blowing in the Wind”

“Generating Wind”

“I’m Not a Plane”

“Harvesting the Wind”

“The Answer, My Friend, is Blowing in the Wind”

Any other ideas? Or do you like one of these?

Thanks for taking the time to read my blog.

I've been fascinated with wind turbines. I think you really captured them well. I like your composition.
