November Bee Block - Flying Geese at The Gates
Tatiana's bee block was inspired by the Christo's 2005 installation in Central Park - the gates. The fabric chosen is from the Cotton & Steel line. It is dynamic yet minimalist. My block assignment was the flying geese pattern, whatever style I'd liked. Tatiana gave several links for inspiration. Although I never saw the installation in person I have seen many photos which gave me the impression the wings on the gates fluttered in a circular motion. I wanted my block to a similar feel that the geese we spinning free.
The block is 16 1/2 inches. The fabric is very pretty with metallic printing which makes it shimmer. My photos are too bright to see the full effect.
