Genevieve Guadalupe – Squares
I loved this assignment, thinking about squares and the rigidity of them, the angles and the many possibilities to work with squares. I hadn’t really thought of it but most of my quilts are done with squares as a background. For this particular quilt I decided to play with the squares as a static background and give movement to the squares in the foreground simulating the formation of a migration flight. The quilting was done to add more movement to the flight taking away the illusion of squares at first sight.
Materials and Technique: hand dyed tocuyo (Peruvian muslin), cotton batting, poly/cotton thread. Machine pieced and quilted.
