I'm in the beginning stage of creating a quilt for a call for entry my art quilting guild, FRCQ is sending out. The theme is "contrast". Now, I normally love to use soft layers and subtle transitions - that's what I'm all about. But I'm going to consider this a challenge. If I have an area I need to work on, it's probably contrast more than any other one thing. So I began with creating some fabric using deep reddish pink and black. I'll create more fabric and fine tune the idea as I go - right now it's just a vague concept.
Our reception was very well attended, and it was so fun to see everybody. I was excited to see the caliber of work juried into the show - and there seemed to be as many ways to interpret the theme of diversity as there were entries. Mine is the one with the faces, and the title is "Light Has Every Color". What I meant by the title is that light is a spectrum. Each bright, pure hue is contained within light. We all contain light, and shine our own colors outward to brighten the world.
