More collage inspiration from the road

Here's a follow-up to my last post. I had given some examples of how I take inspiration for my paper collage quilts (my current art project as part of the #100dayproject), and here you see the inspiration come full circle.

Above you see the original doorway with a motif that caught my eye, back at the beginning of our U.S. road trip. It was in Asheville, North Carolina. Somewhere in Colorado I looked at the motif and sketched the middle image -- a simple, fairly traditional quilt square based on the doorway. And then the image on the right, made today in Idaho, is one of my paper collage quilts.

If you'd like to explore making paper collage quilts with me, I am offering a one-time workshop THIS THURSDAY and there are spots left. Here's the info:


THURSDAY, MARCH 24 / 1:00-2:30pm ET

ON-LINE / $20

We'll be making mixed media paper quilts. We will explore making quilts using both collage & paint (markers work, too), and I will lead you through 3 quick quilt projects that introduce you to traditional quilt square patterns, quilt circles, and impromptu quilts. I think that you will leave the workshop with both some great paper quilts AND ideas for art adventures. I will provide optional printable templates by email before the workshop.
