Quilting has always been a group activity bringing women together to share the task of making something to benefit others. My inspiration comes from the women I meet at Festivals and Quilt Groups. I get energized by sharing ideas and meeting many talented women. To pay tribute to them in my own quirky style, I made this piece borrowing from the juxtaposed imagery of the Surrealist's "exquisite corpse" method to give each character their own playful style.
I submitted this for publication in one of the craft magazines featuring art quilts and received my rejection letter today. I guess it's just not the kind of art quilting that fits in with the popular themes.
But it's true to my style and interest.
I can only please myself!
