Hand Dyed Logs
There is so much controversy in the world of quilting between art and traditional quilting. I've actually witnessed people being downright rude to each other in regards to this controversy. Perhaps the same type of dissension occurs between abstract and realism painters? Anyhow, I love the funkiest most abstract and textural textile art that can be found AND I love log cabin quilts. Yesterday (after getting a loaner machine when my NEW sewing machine broke down - ugh) I started messing around with the fabric I had hand dyed on Saturday. I'm really liking this look of old with the new - it looks modern to me but in a very earthy, primitive way.
