I had so much fun sewing the other night…the former art student in me was in 7th heaven! …creating my June Block for One Block Over. Andrea wants to make a quilt inspired by the artwork of Ton Schulten. I was unfamiliar with his work before Andrea posted her idea. Now, I’m quite smitten by all things Ton Schulten.
Andrea sent this in her package:
The solids at the top of the photo are the “shadow” colors, and the solids at the bottom are for the “sun drenched” portion of the painting. Also included was a thumbnail image from a Ton Schulten calendar for inspiration. Yeah, I’m smitten.
Then I went back and free-pieced the center section, pulling two additional yellow/gold solids from my solids stash to get a little more variety in my pigment.
So again here is the inspiration painting, and my finished block….
So what do you think, Bee Block or Art Quilt?
Maybe a little bit of both…
