New Work: Bach Suite no.1: gigue

Bach+The+Cello+Suites+Yoyoma_Bach_Suites_LI spent the lovely month of February prepping for my taping of The Quilt Show (just found out it will air Nov 25th – mark your calendars!)

Two other things happened together at that same point in time. I was practicing an arrangement of Bach’s Suite no. 1 for Cello (on my horn) and listening to it constantly and I had a deadline coming up.

Now that the results are in I can show you some pictures. I am thrilled to announce that Bach Suite no.1: gigue has been accepted into the An Exquisite Moment exhibit, opening at the  International Quilt Festival in Long Beach; August 1-4, 2013; sponsored by Moore’s Sewing Centers. It will also be showing at the International Quilt Festival in Houston; Oct 31- Nov 3, 2013; sponsored by Havel’s Scissors.

It has been a long time since I’ve been in love with a work that I’ve completed. I enjoy my work and think it’s adequate but feel that I’ve mostly just playing around, learning, working. This piece – I LOVE!

24″ x 60″

It is whole cloth, dyed, discharged, screen printed with original images that I’ve  photoshopped. The cello and wings are hand painted.

The piece says something very close to what I feel about the beauty of music in general, and this piece in particular. The Bach Suites are my “go to” music when I need to feel peace and beauty.

    Lyric: Congrats for your wonderful work and your acceptance by the International Quilt Show exhibits! I understand why you LOVE this piece.
    The painting and screens are so well done and I really like the discharge work. It is absolutely lovely. I can see your happiness and connection to the piece in your work
    and isn’t that connection and feeling the whole point of our play with paint, fabric and many, many tools?!! Suzanne Gwynne

  2. Lyric, I love the piece too! That subtle printing on the background is just beautiful, so soft …like a stillness. I love it!

  3. Really stunning and you should be VERY happy with what you did! Take care, Byrd
