Dancing to a Different Drummer

Guest Curator - Melinda Rushing

Motion is a key concept in design. By combining elements that make the eye move over the work, an artist can convey motion. I find that if a quilt has motion, it holds my attention. That motion might range from slow and contemplative to frenetic and desperate, or somewhere in between.  I hope my selections do the same for you.

Tuning Fork #25: Magnetic Attraction

As children, years ago, my brother and I were given a small bottle of magnetized metal shavings. The shavings had positive and negative ends, or poles, and we loved to pour them carefully on the table, stir them around, and watch as they attracted and repelled one another. In this quilt, the two clumps of shavings are being pulled inexorably toward one other.
