Challenge – Lines

Our first challenge is based on the theme “Lines”. According to the Getty Museum “line is an identifiable path created by a point moving in space. It is one-dimensional and can vary in width, direction, and length. Lines often define the edges of a form. Lines can be horizontal, vertical, or diagonal, straight or curved, thick or thin. They lead your eye around the composition and can communicate information through their character and direction.” Below are images of the quilts the group created to view the artist’s statement you can go to the Quilt Gallery and click on the thumbnail, or click on the artist’s name under the ARTIST GALLERY.

About spaceandtimecreativity

I have embarked on a Certificate Course at Distant Stitch, this is exciting as many years ago when I began to find my artistic voice I studied under Jean Lange in Adelaide, South Australia.Jean taught me that anything was possible (well almost) in stitch. Over the years I have done traditional embroidery, moved into other mediums such as quilting (Art Quilts), beading and many other related crafts. My reason for returning to embroidery is my love of stitch, I love the organic feel of stitches and how it adds another level to my Art Quilts, so I wish to explore how stitch can be used in design and finished work. I am now adding another course.....Sketchbook and I am hoping this will encourage me to keep sketchbooks for my Art Quilt projects.

  1. This is wonderful interpretation of your subject. I do not think these fabrics are ugly though and in fact your choice was perfect. I can actually see the tops of the trees glowing .

  2. Hi everyone,

    Congratulations on your No.1 challenge.

    Regards, Pamela (member of Latitude Quilts).
