I started my second Patriotic piece today. I have been working on it off and on most of the day. It is in the style of Andrea Joseph.
I haven't put in a background yet but am thinking of using a patriotic quilt block. I have one in applique that I have made with a blue square with red, white, and blue hearts appliqued on. Some of the fabrics have stars, some have stripes, some solid. I really like the block. It will make the piece look busy, but I think I can pull it off.
I want to wait to post the patriotic art I have been doing, but it is so hard for me to wait. The first piece I did email a photo to a few close friends. All of them seemed to like it. I have just emailed to the same people what I have so far on this one. Waiting for their feedback. Of course with it not finished, and just my hint at what the background will be, everyone won't be able to see the finished product that is in my head.
