I like to have some easy hand stitching to take to Guild, Patchwork meetings. I do have a box of hexigons, that keeps being added to but I was looking through my design journals and came on this quilt that I had drawn.
It was inspired by a painting from the "Floating Life" exhibition back in 2009. The artist was Gulumbu Yunupingu, a first nation artist from Arnhem Land. Her painting is about the Universe and when I think about the universe I think, stars.
(I lived in Arnhem Land and got to know some of these people when I was teaching there, so these works have a very special meaning for me.)
Then I was watching an episode of "The Last Homely House" where Kate was also planing a long term project for hand piecing and her work was all about stars also. She had found a template on the blog Wild Olive for a plus sign, that looks a bit like a star, and I was wondering if this would work for the design I had drawn back in 2009?
I think that I will have to print out that template and make a trial small quilt to test my idea. It might work, it might not.
