I think I mentioned that I am taking some online classes at Craftsy. I have finished watching and am now rewatching Weeks Ringles' "Designing Modern Quilts" and loving it. She is a great speaker and shares her process and tons of her and her hubby's quilts. It is so very cool to get a one on one class (with lots of others in the Craftsy forum) from her!
Exploration # 2 was matching up fabrics to a painting of one of the masters (they gave us several to choose from) and though mine is not done, here is what I have so far. The painting is "La Grade Odalisque" and has really warm tones for the skin and the complimentary cool colors of the silk drapery and bedding.
I had a dream the other night with my first quilt designing idea--it was no good, but I thought it was interesting that Weeks has my mind thinking of these things even as I sleep!
