I really loved this piece when I printed it several years ago. The fabric was eco dyed using wild sunflowers. I carved a series of printing blocks with this format in mind. Once it was printed I admired it on my design wall until I needed the wall space for something else and then it went into a drawer for 3 or 4 years. This whole cloth piece could be easily quilted up and bound and ready to go. It easily fits the theme "Pattern". It easily fits the 40x40 dimensions. It is actually a rectangle, so several inches would be cut off to make the 40 x 40" size.
But is it too dull? Too drab? Too simple? These are the questions I ask myself as I consider it. Tomorrow I will post it in a different orientation with some of my other ideas for making it more artful. Interested in your ideas, in the meantime.
