I have been tasked with recreating a piece of art. Specifically, this piece of art:
Homage to the Square: Soft Spoken by Josef Albers, 1969.
Read more about it here.
So, why am I doing this? Some friends are putting together a personal gallery of art recreated by their friends. We got a list or artists and I picked this. I've decided to make it out of fabric (of course), but that requires quilting, which I have never done. So I looked to my best bud and quilter extraordinaire who kindly made this lovely quilt for my daughter:
I explained the project. She was a champ and drew me a diagram on how to approach the quilting of my art piece:
How awesome is that? I love how she even numbered the order of the pieces. And this is much simpler than the method I had in mind, which involved triangles and whatnot. She also suggested a specific type of fabric: shot cotton. It totally works! I'll need to find a local source for that or just take my chances and order it from Purl Soho.
So that's the plan thus far. I still need to decide on the color for the binding, how to hang it, how to sign it, etc. My deadline is not for a while, but I want to at least find the fabric so that I am not in a frantic search for it as the deadline approaches. I have a procrastination problem.
