I try not to get political on my blogs, but the events that have been happening the last couple of days in my state have inspired me to make an art quilt piece. I am only in the design stage at this point. And because of the holidays I am not going to be able to do much more than that for a couple of weeks.
Hand dyed fabric
I had recently found this fabric in my pile of hand dyes from one of the dyeing parties. I remember thinking I should do something with it soon. As I was in the shower today (I get lots of ideas in the shower!) I thought of a design to use this fabric to mark the historic ruling on Friday.
Rough drawing of my design idea
I had a vision of the shape of the State of Utah cut from the rainbow fabric. I also want to include the historic date of the court decision and the number 18 to commemorate where we stand nationally in granting civil marriage rights to all citizens of our state. I am still not sure how the details will turn out, but I am so inspired right now that it is difficult to pull myself away to do the things that are scheduled for today.
This is my Design Wall Monday post, check out what everyone else is up to at Judy's blog.
