Art Quilt Mojo Returns, Jane Davies Modern Abstract Artist and Pumpkins Around Town.

Piecing and gathering units.
Began piecing here.

Experimental piecing arrangement, too predictable, took it apart.

Another try at arranging, still too contrived, I sliced it in quarters.

Now things are flowing the way I like them, I can add color where needed.

More auditioning units, I like the saw tooth border, not the squares on point.

Hello from Rancho Palos Verdes!
Where cooler fall temperatures are wonderful and almost Happy Halloween!

Local pumpkin patches are getting lots of business and children are excited about dressing up for harvest parties or trick or treating and getting way too much candy.

Last couple of weeks I have been slowly getting a new art quilt together. I don't like working with traditional piecing for very long as it bores me to death! So I put the 'trad' stuff away and began by throwing caution to the wind. Boring stuff be gone.

I've been spending time looking over Jane Davies', professional abstract artist, YouTube videos on her process. 
Robert Burridge, another exciting abstract artist, has a lot of good YouTube videos on everything from choosing color to layering. He titles his videos 'Another Bob Blast Video',  he does blast out great ideas easy to understand and make your own.

And so quilt friends the fall time is being enjoyed here and abstract art visions are dancing in my head. Let the fun begin.

How are your project adventures coming along?
I hope you're enjoying fall, or spring for those of you down under.

Always remembering to be thankful and I'll be by to visit.
