Initiative Challenge Reveal


Here it is! My first piece created for the Fiberactions group challenge. The challenge word was ‘initiative’ and the name of my quilt is ‘Living a Creative Life’. I initially had a tough time coming up with an idea on how I would interpret this theme. In coming up with ideas for my work, I usually disregard the first few that come to mind. I do this because I think that in a challenge situation people’s first thoughts may be the obvious interpretation of the theme and I want my interpretation to be unique.

I hope this piece evokes a sense of fun and energy. Be sure to click on the image to see all of the details since I spent hours adding different embellishments.

Check out the Fibreractions blog to see the other 12 artist quilts on this theme and more details on this quilt. Our next challenge will be announced later today and I can't wait to see what I will be working on next.
