Isn’t this a lovely image? We are so blessed to witness a new sunrise most mornings without even leaving home. I took this photo today. Those twinkling lights come from neighbors to our south. I find outdoor views a constant source of palette inspiration. Even in this less than perfect photo you can see a range of cool and warm blues, aquas, pinks and corals.
I do manage to peel myself away from the window on occasion. It does take discipline. This week my discipline paid off. I can share that I have officially finished sewing the top for Cautiously Optimistic. For those who like measurable statistics here they are: 40″ H x 64″ W and 2,600 individual pieces. I actually sewed 2,765 pieces due to a couple of whoops moments.
… Or Vertical?
Last week I asked whether you preferred the horizontal orientation with the dark side up or down. The answer is the dark side down, as shown in this post. One of the fun things about abstract, 2D rectangular work is that it can be hung in any of 4 orientations. So… what do you think, horizontal or vertical?
There is one more orientation, for those of you who appreciate a peek behind the curtain, here is the backside of Cautiously Optimistic. Yes, it is upside down once more. What intrigues me is how it has a modern quilt aesthetic with its pops of color on a relatively neutral background.
I am linking up with Nina Marie’s Off the Wall Fridays.
