When I confessed myself a Slow Blogger I had not foreseen how slow things would be over here. Life has struck with full force again and my daytime job needs all my time and energy now. I hope it won’t last very long.
Sewing time has been scarce and almost the only thing I managed to finish is a Mini Quilt for the Challenge over at Ellison Lane Quilts.
My newest inspiration comes for the art of the Sixties. “Optical Art” or “Opt Art” is something that drew my attention already in school when we visited an Exhibition called “Sixties Design”. I rediscovered my knack for bicolor geometry when flipping through this book (found at my Doctor’s waiting room):
I started browsing the web and found so many designs I want to turn into quilts. Seeing my limited sewing time I started with a super simple one (squint your eyes a bit, it makes me dizzy (o: )
I quilted it with a centrical spiral design – which was quite difficult. I admire all those quilters out there who quilt giant spirals on large quilt tops!
Infact, I made a matching one that still needs a binding. These are going to be ultra-modern mug rugs.
Thanks for visiting!
P.S. Next week I might get my free tutorial for a “Neck Bean Bag” done and up. If I happen to find enough time and energy.
