JQC 2006 January revealJanuary 19, 2006
625 Main Street is my first page in an informal quilt journal to record my exploration in the elements and principles of design as they apply to quilting and the needle arts. Each page will also use Victorian Architecture in my hometown of Anderson Indiana as inspiration.
In January I have focused on line; exploring thick lines, thin lines, straight lines and curved lines. The home that I used this month was
built at 625 Main Street and was a wonderful example of Stick Architecture of the early 1900’s. It is a shame that the home was demolished in order to make way for the growing business district. King Solomon explains in the Bible, though, that there is “a time to break down and a time to build up” (Ecc. 3:3)
This journal page is 8 1/2 ” x 11″. It includes both machine stitching and
hand stitching. Materials are all 100% cotton. To see a photo of the original house and details on the construction process please see JQC2006 January.
Thank you to the Anderson Downtown Neighbors Association for the use of their photo!
