Fig 10 'Hibernate in colour'

This autumn I am going to make my first quilt this is my inspiration above, images found on the internet and many other beautiful blogs, thanks everyone for giving me so many colourfull ideas. Can not wait to be tucked up in something just as beautiful and comforting as these one's. My little red sewing machine is going to be on fire for the weeks up to Christmas, keep your eyes peeled for outcome.

Fig 9 'The Serpentine Dance' Lumière Brothers 1899

I fell across this incredible film, shot in 1899. Firstly I was struck by the colour and beauty, secondly on how advanced the filming was, and how people must have felt when viewing it for the first time in 1899.

The colours and shapes in which the dancers are making are mind blowingly beautiful, I could watch it all day its hypnotizing. Each frame of this 19th Century film by Lumière brothers was hand painted to create an early colour moving picture. A beautiful example of the earliest cinematic ART.

Enjoy the film
