Red Window in the Athens Sun Workshop Participant Showcase # 7

I'm so thrilled with all the beautiful fabric art that was created by the participants in my recently completed 'Red Window in the Athens Sun' workshop. I will be showcasing their work over the next few weeks in a series of posts. So check back often and don't forget to comment.

I think you will agree that the diversity of style and expression are amazing.

Interview with Connie

1. Did this project challenge you? Yes

2. Did you enjoy the process? Yes

3. Did you learn something new/different and stretch your boundaries? Definitely 

4. What was the easiest/hardest concept or technique to accomplish? Selecting fabrics & cutting into small pieces was very challenging to me. I can look a my piece & see I didn’t cut small enough pieces. 

5. Were you surprised that you accomplished such a complicated piece without a pattern or template? Yes! I first I was very skeptical that it would turn into anything recognizable. The turning point was doing the window & shutters!

6. Did you Develop/improve your Artist Eye? Hopefully I developed a little. 

7. How do you feel about your personal accomplishment? Do you like your artwork? Yes I like it and now I am inspired. 

8. Were you surprised by your own creativity, innovative decisions, and how? Very surprised that I could accomplish this project and put some of my own touches to it. 

9. Did this project increase/decrease your creative confidence? How. This helped to increase my confidence. I had no idea I could create something from a picture and make it look like the picture. I definitely want to try more collage quilting!
