Final Piece - Day Six

Today there is going to be very little final piece work going on due to the other stack of deadlines I realised at 5 am this morning that are coming up in the next week. I am back on my computer and my sewing machine is having a well earned rest. But I can't resist a little post before I put the final touches to my PDP.

Yesterday when I was fully in my sewing groove I started noticing the interesting folds and tucks that were appearing in my quilt. I got my camera and shot a whole stack of images to pop in my sketchbook, I was just reviewing them and noticed this one.

I love that the un squared half of the quilt is so scrunchy and free, whereas the part of the quilt covered in tiny squares is even folded in a very structured way (left). FlyLilyPad was right when she said that my quilt was exploring 'a perfect metaphor for the unpredictable interplay of organic vs machine; man vs nature.' This project has given me so many opportunities to ponder the subtleties of the things I make and the meanings behind them, I am going to miss it when it is done. But I am looking forward to drowning in colourful fabrics once this is piece is handed in. I am thinking I might finally get round to that 70's pillowcase quilt I've been hoarding for, for the last few years. 

In un-quilt related news, I was very sad to hear of the death of Robin Gibb this morning. BorderlineStraggler had a very big BeeGees phase a couple of years ago and I have to admit I too fell under their spell. During this time we spent a very entertaining evening seeing the world's number one heavy metal tribute to the BeeGees 'Tragdey'. Today's written work will be accompanied by the sweet soothing sounds of their Metal tributes. I encourage you to give them a listen.
