What Angle are You Coming From?

Once again, I have completely underestimated the visual impact of this piece.

The angles and mostly solid colours are producing a stronger piece than I expected.

This morning I was just playing with some different layouts...
Layout #1
Layout # 2
Layout # 3
Layout # 4

Now see what happens when I rotate the photos....everything looks totally different to me. Just hanging a piece in a different direction changes your perspective on it.

I'm not sure where this is taking me....ah, the joys of improv!!


  1. I am speechless by this! Just SO SO awesome and inspiring!!

  2. Oh wow Marianne, whatever you choose it will be stunning!!

  3. The third vertical photo (second to last) I like best. Have fun continuing to play!

    Mmm, layout #2 is also awesome.

  4. Ha ha.. I agree that layout 3 is best, but I like it horizontal.

  5. Any layout you pick will be stunning! I am so in love with this one!

  6. I wondered how this was going to come together. Of these I like version 3 the best, but I think it is because I find it the most "calm" of the layouts. As you were inspired by your migrane, calm may be the opposite of what you intend and I wonder which one you like best. Will you join them or put something else in between?

  7. This is wonderful! I like all of the layouts but love the vertical ones. My head is in a tangle trying to work out which way each piece has changed in each layout! I an always so impressed with your work and thank you for being so generous in sharing it. How big will it be finished?

  8. OMG! Really I don't know what to say. I love this. I was struck the most by #1 in both sets for some reason that hook look in the center is striking even more than the rest. I am compelled to say I wish I was near you so some of this wow-ness would maybe rub off on me. I can't seem to even cut into the fabric much less get something like this.

  9. I'm really enjoying this process!!

  10. Any of your layout looks fabulous.Love all.Happy sewing!

  11. Once again, you amaze me. This quilt is just WOW in any direction. Every time I see your work, I get inspired to go and start cutting and sewing. Improv quilting, and, not having a specific design in mind, is, well, just fun.

  12. Too beautiful for words...
    All variations are amazing, I specially love the two last ones, but how can you choose? Wonderful work!

  13. These look fabulous!! Have you considered leaving them as a diptych? You could add hanging sleeves to all eight sides so the way they're displayed can be rotated.

  14. Oh my goodness, I want to learn to do what you are doing. Your work is amazing. I'm in awe of your talent. I am your newest follower, and I would be over the moon if you would choose to follow me back.
    Connie :)

  15. Wow - stunning! I like layout #1 - the pieces seem to interact to me. You are an inspiration!
