Art Quilt, Haiku, Poetry, Quilts

My Peach Rhapsody

Just about the time we got the Haiku prompt word for September I was itching to do another fiber/ribbon collage quilt.  The perfect opportunity arose when we were presented with the word “Rhapsody”.

I always think it’s kinda interesting to look at thought processes and how we end up where we end up so I hope you do too.  I immediately discarded the obvious (to me at least that was Rhapsody in Blue) and considered “what have I been rhapsodizing about lately?” Peaches!!  I had brought home some from Costco and every time I had one I was oohing and aahing about how delicious and perfect it was.

AND, just a few days before I had been in the local quilt shop looking at orange and PEACH fabric and carrying on about how gorgeous it was.

Tada!……………….. Peach Rhapsody

And here’s the Haiku

A Project That Has Me Working Overtime and Wanting to Share

The rest of the title should be…And catching up with Haiku Art.  I am woefully behind BUT I have excuses.  The dog ate my quilt?

Let’s see, the November word just was announced – it is Gnarled.  I mean the word is “gnarled”.  October was Canopy (I’m working on the art – at least in my mind) and September was Rhapsody.

Finally Rhapsody is well on its way.

Here is the Background that I’m so excited about…

It is collaged ribbons and fibers on tulle.  I just washed out all the stabilizer and it’s dry and ready for the next step.

Stay tuned!
