The Modern Quilt Guild is organizing the Riley Blake Rockstar Challenge this spring. Sign up was last fall and fabric packs were delivered a bit ago. Love the orange and blues together!
Just needed to make something quilted ... This wee wall hanging (17" x 19.5") is my result.
Thinking about the "Rock Star" theme, I latched on to my all time favourite song, Simon & Garfunkel's "Bridge Over Troubled Water". It's also one I played with a passion when I played piano. I could likely still play that one if I cleared the trinkets off the piano.
One of the fun new learnings at the London Modern Guild this year, was how to do hexies. I'm not normally a hand-piecer, but I am loving the possibilities and portability of working with hexies. So the hexies transformed into the notes for this representation. Dresden plate pieces became the bridge over the free-cut landscape.
Finished with swirls in the 'troubled water' and the sky (representing the wind making the waters, troubled).
This was so fun to do!
