When is a quilt not a quilt???? I am interessted in others perspectives.
I have just finished a piece for the Naracoorte town council art show on the theme "Men in their sheds". I began by taking photos which I printed on fabric and appliqued to a backgound. This I then quilted with uneven wadding placing more behind the photos than in between. I then stitched on various objects both conventional like beads and buttons and less conventional like screws and biro lids. This was then stretched over a wooden frame - and further objects added with nails, hooks, superglue (onto plain buttons preplaced for this purpose).
Tony says that from a distance it looks like vomit but when you get close in it is interesting ... what do you think? I think I have capured some of the mess in the shed but is it art? (By the way Tony is the most wonderfully supportive quilting husband - just honest in his comments.)
