This photo of the blue chair was taken by Bea at Dog in the Hole Studio.
I knew right away that I had to make
an art quilt from this photo.
This was back in August '09 I believe.
Bea and I said
we would both make an art quilt
from this picture.
I think she is about finished with hers.
It measures 17 by 18 inches for the entire piece.
Right click to enlarge in order to see the detail.
I made it from fabric, polymer clay and paper fabric.
The chair is polymer clay
which is attached using E6000 glue.
The door is some of my hand dyed shibori.
My batik is used for the window glass.
There are a few black beads on the side of the door.
I did some free motion stitching on it and
added some color and texture with oil paint sticks and also acrylics.
The edging is fabric paper that I painted turquoise,
but let the paper underneath show through a little bit.
I then sewed the fabric piece to the fabric paper.
The writing on the bottom says
"Down in the Blue chair...we can watch our troubles rise!"
That is part of a song titled
Kenny Chesney does one too called
There are a few Blue Chair songs out there,
all different from each other.
Well Bea, what do you think!!!!
