The Jetsons Art Quilt!

I grew up in the 60/s and 70’s…. and perhaps some of you will know or at least recognize the title from the cartoon:  “The Jetsons!”  
I purposely created this piece to be able to show students a sample of using paintstiks and that it can be as simple as you want to make it!  
In this piece, I took a basic circle stencil, for some very easy round shapes that make a great exercise to practice your free motion skills on too! 
And so… 
the resulting shapes came out very space-like, unintended as they were!  
And when it was done, it sure was a reminder of the fun, whacky, zany world of … 
George Jetson!

 This is a small quilt; maybe about 12″x12″, but large in FUN.  What a great way to practice for quilting with multiple types of threads, playing with tension…
…different stitches just … because… you CAN!

You just never know what surprises you might find when you start playing… and you may find that your experiment will take you to
“infinity and beyond!”
