Synergy: the power that results when the combined efforts of persons is greater than the sum of their individual efforts. Abraham Maslow
Since my theme is textiles, color, freestyle and synergy in art, I was thinking about this as I created my first piece. I chose fabrics that I might not put together based on their color/style compatibility and just started freestyling. I spent a bunch of time sewing the striped fabric in a funky way....not sure I like what happened, but I am glad to have made an attempt at a new style. My favorite thing about quilting is that the layering creates a synergy. First you sew the fabrics together, then you put a backing down and quilt on top of that. Somehow, magically, this layering allows just about any design and color to work together. Synergy!
