Jane’s “Pun” Quilt
Well, this should be a delightful reveal. It has been very challenging for me. I kept researching visual puns hoping to find one that really spoke to me. Finally, about 2 weeks ago, I ran across an image which inspired my quilt. I have to admit I tried to come up with something totally original that had art connotations, but had to come back to this image.
The title of my quilt is Negative Space. All of the planets have frowns, one is crying, one has her tongue out. Some of these expressions are difficult to see, but they are there.
I started with a hand-dyed background then looked into my stash of fused fabrics to find some planets. After quilting the background, I fused the planets in place and quilted them. Then I drew their expressions on with markers. I thought it was done but realized they didn’t particularly look like planets. I added the sparkly rings around one of them with Holoshimmer thread to add that special quality.
I wanted to use the expression, “Color gets all the credit while Value does the work” Can any of you draw me a cartoon of that?
