Sheila of Idaho Beauty suggested that I take the variations on my abstract quilt from my last blog and put them together into one quilt. Great idea!! Why didn’t I think of that?
Here are some variations on putting them together.
One: Same orientation for all four variations.
Two: Flipping, rotating horizontally and vertically.
Three: Same as two, but cropping to get it off center.
Four: Rotating, stretching, and changing orientation.
At this point I realized I could keep going and going and going with variations. There are a lot of possibilities with these 4 blocks combined! This will warrant more playing in Photoshop as well as in EQ.
Well onto the next lesson. This time we get to play with photos and pixelate them to get something abstract.
How about stretching it to have rectangles rather than squares?
How about distorting it with a liquefy filter?
How about changing the colors?
How about making one from some fabric I created?
This was the fabric that gave the image above after pixelating, stretching, rotating, distorting, and using patchwork filter.
It is amazing how much you can come up with starting with a simple idea and design.
What do you think? Should I make any of these into a quilt?
Thanks for reading. We sold our bedroom furniture over the weekend so now I know we are really moving!
