April 2013, Line

The April Design Element was Line
WAV members experimented with Line for this month's lesson.  The photo shows each member's interpretation, including: a line drawing of a NYC skyline; movement created by line; visual texture created by shadows of the quilt lines, positive and negative expressions of lines, etc.

Since Cheryl missed last month's meeting, she showed us both Line and Color this month.
She mentioned color quantity and ratios when describing her Color piece (upper left corner), which was a new concept to some of us and a good refresher for others.

Pegee provided a program on Pieced Strips, as taught by Carol Taylor.  This is another way to include line in quilts.

Cynthia reminded us that our Challenge on the artist canvases are due next meeting.  One should be 24" x 36" and the companion piece is 8" x 10", vertical orientation.
