My Interpretation of a “Baby Quilt”

May 25th, 2010

I just can’t make myself make the traditional baby-themed quilts. This one is on its way to Germany, though the baby in question is 5 months old now!

For those interested in process:most of this started out as white silk which I painted with acrylic paints, with the exception of a few of the rays which are commercial prints.

    Sam’s quilt has been up on the wall in his room for quite some time now. I have nicknamed it ‘solar wind’.

    My wife shares your sense of non-traditional baby-themededness. She’s been quite tired of all the pastel choice.

    wow, nice. I see a mixture between a crab, a sun ( with solar wind as Simon says ), an island ( seen from the sky ) and also an eye. All together its very powerfull. Well done 🙂

    I love the blue(s).
    Ok, so I’m partial to blue(s) anyway but it’s fantastic work overall and so vibrant, cheerful, and fun.

    Five months old is still brand new imo. I’m sure that the recipients will sincerely appreciate it. Anyone would.
    Of course, I’d be hanging it on a wall, pressed and framed.

    There’s a big color, and even texture difference between your preview pic (NewLifeQuilt1-300×265.png) and the full size one (NewLifeQuilt1.png).
    The full size one looks as soft to the touch as I’m sure that it truly is.

    There are a lot of talented/gifted/skilled Mozillian artists and artisans. I think that it would be cool to have a Mozillian art auction to benefit a charity, or cause. 🙂
