Victoria, over at 15 Minutes Play, set us a new challenge. Start with a 15 minute play block, then ask "What if I . . . .?". I used all my play blocks in my intuition quilt, so I set myself a challenge to make one using the first six scraps I pulled from the top of my scrap bin. I usually use more than six fabrics, so this was a bit of a challenge, but great fun. If you are interested in creating new fabric from scraps, Victoria
has a great tutorial here.
After playing for a little while, I came up with this.
Then I cut it into four uneven pieces, and auditioned fabric for the next step.
I liked it enough to make it the first border. I put in the corner pieces from fabric made from my favorite dress of all time. I just love this fabric, and plan on using more of it for this quilt.
The top photo is the way I left the piece this evening. Tomorrow, I am looking forward to playing with this some more. I already have ideas for the next border. I am also working on the church block for my Coming Home quilt. It is supposed to be snowing here again tomorrow, so I am looking forward to another creative day in the studio. I hope you all have a wonderful joy filled day as well.
