I am intrigued with the idea of making fabric for backgrounds using different techniques. Gloria Loughman has been very successful using diamonds to create wonderful backgrounds. She makes much better diamonds than I do. I wasn't thinking, and used the 30 degree angle instead of the 45. It is still interesting, and will work for what I need.
I needed something in very earthy tones, so I went through my batiks and found just the right ones. I will applique the focal pieces on by hand, I think. This one is for the International Robin. I like using these earth tones, even though they are a huge departure from the colors I have been using. It is good to try different things.
I will be with Bella the next couple of days, then I head north for my Gwen Marston workshops. I am not sure there is an internet connection where I am staying, so I may not be online until I get back. I will take plenty of photos, and give you all a full report on the workshop when I am able. Until then, joyful quilting, everyone.
