22 – Asking For Help

May 22, 2019 By

While pondering what would give my dragon quilt more life, I asked for help. SAQA MA/RI is an unwieldy name for the local chapter of Studio Art Quilting Association. Members meet once a month to chat about art, quilting or whatever– the small group size makes for a comfortable size to discuss work in progress. I showed my creation to this group online for critique.

I got what I asked for! The green background fabric was questioned. After the meeting, to test their critique, I held up other colors to block out the green. A flame orange instantly lit up the piece, giving the visual punch it had been missing! But oh my gosh, the painted work was already sewn onto the green – what to do now??
