This was our last reveal of the year. We did it via Zoom, as we've done all reveals this year. It was a wonderful afternoon, seeing all the beautiful quilts. The descriptions of the quilts are the 'artist statements' by the makers.

The landscape is fractured and abstract as are cubist landscapes and paintings. As I enjoy creating landscapes more that abstract art, I drew inspiration from studying George Braque’s cubist landscapes, who had inspired Picasso’s work. I used cotton fabric, fusible interfacing, white cotton batting, Superior Threads’ clear polyester monofilament thread and rayon thread. This was a challenge in two areas. First, my creativity flatlined this year making my start date way too close to the deadline. I had to simplify my original design to complete it in the limited time. I am not as pleased with the outcome. Second, I choose the topic to truly challenge myself to create an abstract piece outside of my comfort zone. The fusible interfacing made the piece stiff and difficult to work with.
