Privilege Progression – quilt slide show

One of the reasons I like to machine stitch some of the seams on bigger quilts is so that I can cycle through variations and ideas faster. The many phases of a design get lost along the way, and I’ve always thought that was kind of a shame (especially when the ‘best’ version is say, #7, while the finished version is #14!).

If I captured even a fraction of the process it would become clear why a quilt can take so many months to create.  And, the hope is that a process that is inherently frustrating will be less so if there is a visual record. What would I learn?  We shall see.

Lately I’ve begun to think that I just want to ARRANGE fabric, TAKE A PICTURE, and call it a day. That’s the other extreme… but what IF the product were purely digital?!

In the meantime, here is  ‘White House of Privilege’ morphing into something else. The White House has flown elsewhere. To be continued.

I will count this first stab at creating a slide show as a major victory on a day where the computer crashed and my photo uploading developed (new! interesting!) problems.

    Seeing the process is equally as inspiring as the finished quilt.
    Meditation in motion.
    Favorite surprise? Seeing your feet!
    I think of your hands when I experience your creations, loved seeing your feet. Why?
    Feet represent grounding and direct connection with the earth.
    Your art is grounded in its presence, its content, your blog and your being.
    Thanks for sharing

    Thanks julierose and elizabeth… all those changes are what I want to capture (with and without feet — maybe I need to get my hands in there, too?)
