Time to Fly – Brenda Roach

“Time to Fly”, © 2010, grew from workshops with Gail Garber and Andrea Perejda, and from Margaret J. Miller’s ‘Starry Path’ block from her book Stunning Angleplay Blocks. I wanted to have a block hit an obstacle, explode, and scatter. I drew the quilt on butcher paper and constructed most of it using freezer paper templates. There are Swarovski crystals where the block explodes and in the centers of the circles.

    Time to Fly release an energy that is both unique and expressive. Its minute detail exploding in jewel tones moves it into the the finest of abstract art.

    This is awesome! The red & white wheels actually spin in you stare at them, especially the small one (optical illusions). Nice job!!
