Repeating Images

Bright Mary
As I have mentioned before, everything I sew begins with the
Trickle Down Theory. I try some technique out somewhere on something that I plan to use again on some more important project.

Saturday night was a night to experiment. I have an upcoming deadline for the ARTImage Challenge. One of my ideas was to use a new program called Kaleidoscope Kreator 2.0 to design the images for the piece. The ARTImage Challenge piece this month is by the dutch artist, M.C. Escher and it involves repeated background motifs in black and white. My new kaleidoscope software does a great job of capturing images to repeat. For the Escher piece I want to use Victorian women's images. At the tailend of saving those images, I decided to experiment with some Virgin images.

Hours later, I was still entralled. I can definitely see that my Spring Madonna piece will use some of these images. Just a few for your viewing pleasure:

These are wonderful!! I especially like the last one. Are these holy card images? I had thought of doing a Paula Nadelstrom kalidescope with the left over Alexander Henry virgins, but you beat me to the punch. These are definitely keepers.

We can definitely do a kaleidoscope idea for the spring piece. These can be printed as whole flowers or the individual petals can be printed and then sewn together. I haven't printed anything yet but I will experiment later this month.

I just fell in love with your Madonna quilts. They are just beautiful. There is a good book I think you would like, Our Lady of the Lost and Found. It's very good with a great sense of humor. You won't want to put it down until you're finished.
