I am a member of Kansas Art Quilters, and our upcoming exhibition is "Altered Views". Several of us are working on a collaborative piece for this exhibition. The guidelines were to create two similiar 9" blocks, complete with quilting and binding. One of these blocks remains un-altered, and the other one was distributed to another artist to be altered and/or embellished. Below is the block that I received in its original state. Not exactly my normal color palette or style, so I initially struggled with it.
Below is what I eventually decided on as my altered version. I think I was successful in keeping the original artist's design intact, yet adding enough elements to give it my own style as well. What do you think?
