Ok, let's just say that I was overzealous with my ability to create tons and tons of these pear studies. Also, a bit overwhelmed. The thing I learned with this exercise is that you don't have to have a million pieces in order to create something that looks very life-like. Also, keeping to a regular "pear" color scheme is boring boring boring. Thus the psychodelic pear. I did do a pieced foundation for another pear block and am eager to see how that looks, but have just been buried this week at work.
Last night at Art Quilt Group one of the ladies, Amy, followed some instructions on how to dye black fabric using bleach in a bottle. very cool and out of time this morning.
