I have a new addiction. Victoria over at 15 Minutes Play has provided a spot for creating outside the box, and just plain play time fun. I've already posted a couple of ongoing projects on that blog that I have been getting together for using up bits and pieces. Not wanting to be a blog hog, I didn't go into a lot of detail. I also intend to join in with Rossie and her Process Pledge group. That is, if I hear from anyone who has an interest in my processes. But just for today, I'll post a few pictures of things that I've got going on. Maybe seeing everything on screen will remind me that I've got to learn to focus. HA!
I named this quilt "The Aspens at Muddy Pass". It's my attempt at an abstract design using a sketch that I did several years ago. I've gotten it sandwiched and ready to quilt.
Then there's the selvage thing. For years I've checked out the selvages of every fabric that I see. Always thought I was a little weird that way. Seems I was not the only one. I would cut & toss all those selvages that into a basket, thinking that I would figure out what to do with them one of these days. I stumbled into Karen's blog and yippee, I'm off and running. With info and guidance from Jacquie and her tutorial I've got a good start on using up that basket full of selvages.
In my spare time, I've been doing a bit more fabric dyeing as well as using soy wax to learn how to batik my fabrics. Got a couple of cabinet shelves loaded up and waiting for some experimentation a la Jean Wells and her inspirational book "Intuitive Color and Design" . Maybe even an Amish style quilt in the manner of the Lazy Gal Liberated Amish 2010 Get Together
I'll write about that in more detail at a latter time. Right now I've got some more fabric soaking in a bucket of soda ash calling for color.
