Well then! Check out Jayne's post about her now-finished Threads. You need to see it close up! From here you can see some similarity to Monochrome, pictured below, but of course Jayne made it her own by tweaking the improv under the influence technique and adding in bits of color. It's up close, though, that you also see she added color through her quilting. Marvelous.
I came oh so close to adding color in my quilting of Monochrome, but in the end, obviously stuck with the neutrals. And I love it. But even more, I enjoy the two takes, Jayne's and mine, similar but different. I love how inspiration does that - is such a personal thing, and becomes something new.
Of course, my own inspiration for Monochrome came after I made Room Temp during a class with Krista/Poppyprint. I was so taken with the improv under the influence technique, that I finished my version pronto, and then wondered, "what next?"
Here is Krista/Poppyprint's own original Improv Under the Influence quilt. I know I've traveled 'backwards' in this post, but isn't it great how the inspiration flows . . . tweaking as it goes, according to each person's vision, yet having similar elements that tie them together.
It really is something, isn't it?
