Blue Suede Quilt

The A4 challenge theme for this bi-monthly was "an Elvis Presley song". I immediately thought of Blue Suede Shoes and knew I was on to something. I have some Cherrywood fabric which I think looks sueded and wanted to use it. I chose a gradation of blues.

Often my work seems linear to me: squares, lines graphic boldness that is angular. I challenged my self to create a more organic flowing structure with this design. I loosely designed a starting point in photoshop and then free cut the sections and parts.

Blue and orange, on the rusty side, are one of my favorite color combinations. Doesn't this just sing.
