I am very, very, very undecided where to go with the fabrics for this. I usually am very good with this part of quiltmaking but this time I am stuck.
So I need your advice! Please be honest....it will help me out.
When I got the idea for this quilt a year plus ago, I was at the copy shop playing around with enlarging images. I noticed how interesting it looked when different part of the image where just scattered on top of each other.....
So I made more copies and arranged them until I was happy.
Then I squared it up to 24 inches.
Now I am stuck.......I have my collection of purple solids.
But I am thinking I should mix in purple prints to give it more texture and life. What do you think????
Also, I am toying with the idea of assigning breaking down the orginal image into a certain number of values, then assigning each section/value a specific fabric. That way I can unify the whole image in the same way it currently is using the grayscale. So the individual sections would bend more into a united whole.
Now your feedback please!!! Should I stitck to just solids or mix the two of them together?????
Do you think the idea of assigning values to the original picture would work?
Looking forward to hearing from you!!
