Another Fragment of the Frontier of Beauty
"Another Fragment of the Frontier of Beauty," 13.25 x 41, made by Pam Geisel, Oct. 2014
Has it really been seven months since I posted about a new quilt? The good news is that I has several new ones to share over the next few weeks. First up is "Another Fragment of the Frontier of Beauty."
The title is a quote by Albert Einstein from a wonderful story titled "The Night I Met Einstein" by Jerome Weidman, which I first read in Reader's Digest but you can read by following the link.
I actually started this piece back in June, doing the machine piecing and design work but saving the hand beading for when I needed a project to work on away from the studio. There was a lot of auditioning fabrics until I found the solid green pieces that I used to complement the focal fabrics. The long vertical piece that runs through the middle is one piece of hand dyed fabric that starts with a gold tone that blends into a blue color and hangs below the bottom of the quilt.
