The beading has been started on this quilt. You’ve seen it here before, but it’s been sitting on the back burner for a while.
When I picked it up, it had been folded in such a way that I wondered about cutting the folded section off. My intention was to have the color appear as an extension of the black and white going through the pure white. The vertical section on the right suddenly looks wrong.
When I paint a picture, I have no trouble cropping it for a better look before framing. But this is a quilt…Before I take the cutter to it, it seems like a good idea to give it a little thinking time…and ask your opinion, too. Here’s what I think I need to do:
If I cut that section off completely it just seems to make a better picture. Seriously, what do you think?
The beading plan right now is to have radiating lines of black beads across the black/white stripe, very heavy white on white beading and perhaps some radiating white lines over the colored section. Here’s a detail of what I’ve started with.
I plan to do some very heavy beading in the white rays of my ‘sun’.
Cropping pictures is easy. Cropping a quilt–maybe not so much!
