My husband was in Hong Kong last week,
and he came across this artist and he knew I would
like this, and thought maybe my quilt blog pals would like it too!
What a guy! He's looking out for me, and for you all!
He used silk scarves...sewed them all together...
And as part of his installation, added FANS for something quilt magical!
Isn't it wonderful?
Thanks for all the wonderful encouragement! I made quite a few geese today!
A little each day...I can do it!
Beautiful piece and effect. Your geese are wonderful.ReplyDelete
I spent the day pulling all the old fabric out of my chest and washing it, now i am folding it and putting it in piles for quilting and art pieces.
What a GUY is right! Keep pluggin' away...you'll get enough geese in no time!ReplyDelete
that sure is a lot of scarves! Woo Hoo the lil geese are multiplying!!!ReplyDelete
Beautiful silk scarves! Your geese look fabulous! Keep going! Can't wait to see it king size! What size are the geese?ReplyDelete
He was spot on!! Love it! How inventive, creative, and colorful. Love the scarves!!ReplyDelete
I'm one that loves it! The black and white to color was wonderful! Love the geese.ReplyDelete
Wow...that is cool. It looks huge!!ReplyDelete
Kito is amazing!! Tell your husband thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete
Ahhhh. I'm so glad you are plugging away on the geese.
Love the silk scarves AND your geese - yay, keep 'em coming!!ReplyDelete
Wow! Very, very cool. Your geese are looking plucky too!ReplyDelete
Your hub is the best! Thank him for all of us. The art is absolutely amazing...love the geese! That's on my 'to do' list too...one of these days.ReplyDelete
Thank your husband, that was great to seeReplyDelete
Amazing! Wish I could visit there myself!!ReplyDelete
And I'm loving your scrappy geese! You truly are the scrappy queen!!
Wow for Kito...and the geese! A few a day is the way to go. My husband is a long distance cyclist and he says the only way to tackle maybe 750 miles, is only think as far as the next control!ReplyDelete
Wow!! Kit Kengo is amazing! I like how you started the post in black and white and then surprised us with the burst of color! The fans are a great idea. That's nice that Hubby thought of you :0) I love your flying geese, too.ReplyDelete
It is amazing what people come up with!ReplyDelete
That's pretty cool!ReplyDelete
Your geese look stunning too!
Your geese look fantastic! Thanks for the link... Fascinating work...ReplyDelete
Silk scarves and fans ... beautiful combination! THANK YOU for sharing it with us!ReplyDelete
You've done it! You've inspired me. I was going to try a double-wedding quilt for our fifth anniversary, coming up July 1 (yikes)... but I've never done that pattern and and didn't think it would show off my fun and diverse fabrics, and let's just say I've procrastinated the heck out of it. The geese are much more interesting. And I can do it piece by piece, in the minutes I snatch out of the day to sew, frustration free! Thank you. (my dominant color will be Kaffe-lime green).ReplyDelete
That is magical, I'd love to see a video of it...ReplyDelete
My hubby does that too while traveling for work, reports back to me about the quilt shops he passes, quilts on display, etc. They're keepers.
I went to Kito's site... amazing! Did you see his sculpture using umbrella's without the fabric? OMG! Thanks so much for sharing, and thank your hubby, too. He must be a patient and sweet man, like mine, cause he puts up with the fabric purchases, and quilty madness.ReplyDelete
Your geese are going great! I love the colors!!!
Words (at least mine) won't do it justice.ReplyDelete
Great site too.
Thanks for sharing!
Those billowing scarves reminded me of the quilt that waved at your show.ReplyDelete
That installation is awesome!ReplyDelete
