Not long ago I wrote about making small scale collage paper quilts inspired by the Gees Bend quilters. I am still working on these collages but decided my experience with these designs would be greatly enhanced if I also made drawings of the tiny paper quilts.
I was not using the sketch book pages opposite of the collaged quilts because I didn’t want the designs and textures to compete with one another. But they looked lonely and empty. I then got it in my mind to make drawings of the collages. Not exact replicas but something that would mimic the designs. As mentioned in my post about the collages, my focus is on minimalism as well as design. Below are the drawings I have done so far and I have them pictured next to the quilt they are mimicking.
