0-600 Minutes

I was chatting last week with some other artists about my 100 Day Project and one asked me if I was putting it on my blog.  Obviously, I haven’t been.  But why not?  Insert shrugging emoji here!  Rather than putting each day’s work on the blog, I plan to post about each finished project.  You can read more about what I’m doing for my 2020 100 Day Project, 6000 Minutes, here.

The first project I completed was Three Pines.  I made an improv evergreen tree before the Christmas holidays last year and I wanted to expand on that idea.  Cutting it in half and  mounting it on two canvases was even more fun.  The left side is 16″ x 12″ and the right side is 9″ x 12″.  It is called Three Pines for obvious reasons, but it is also a nod to one of my favorite book series set in Three Pines, Quebec by Louise Penny.  I listen to a lot of audiobooks while I sew.  This was Days 1-3.



For Days 4-5, I wanted to play with some random, organic lines.  I made a pillow for a friend last summer with this idea and, again, I wanted to revisit the idea and play some more.  I called this one Grifology #5 as part of my series of marks that look like language.  This is a more abstract interpretation of that idea, but these kinds of line are my fabric language.  It is 24″ x 8″.



Next up was a slightly larger piece at 20″ x 20″.  Another idea I wanted to try:  a cityscape.  Are you sensing a theme here?  That is one of the fun things about this project.  I get to try ideas I’ve had floating around in my brain for a while and haven’t taken the time to pursue.  So, a cityscape made it to the top of the list on days 6-10.  The quilting on this one is very close ranging from less than an eighth of an inch to a bit more than a quarter.  It took about six hours to complete the whole piece.
