Lines and Grids


Moving right along, although slowly at times, I've done some more pages for my Lines and Grids journal as part of the Sketchbook Project. Later, when we finish the quilt I will post the completed project. This is a gift to a service person who has served in the war,  through an organization called Quilts of Valor Foundation.
Didn't want the journal too get to serious so I added the quote regarding ice cream cones. One of those silly quotes you get on the internet


The triangle is after an artist IL Lee. His work is predominately done in ballpoint pens and I was lucky enough to see a show at the San Jose Art Museum a few years back. I have plans to include piece after his style.
The last piece is influence  by a local artist, Laura M. Manthey. I had such a delightful time viewing and buying some of her pieces. Since I like line, this was a perfect match.

My list of ideas is growing. Daily I can observe line and grid work. I positive bonus of this project.

Your pages are coming on very well and very original I think? I would have been very scared of that theme but you are doing a great job.

Fabulous calligraphy and I love how you drew the quilt, with each section colored with more lines and grids.

Firstly- beautiful quilt pattern. Secondly- amusing ice cream anecdotes (not to mention very true!) Thirdly, thanks for dropping by my blog earlier. I'm glad that it led me to yours!

I miss sewing quilts Sandra, but not enough to start one. LOL! Perhaps I could draw one as pretty as yours here. Your handwriting is gorgeous. And the quotes about ice cream were fabulous! Thanks for the smiles and inspiration.
