If a quilt is alone in the forest….does it make a sound???
I can’t tell ya, but I’m thinking its possible because I know they have a story to tell for sure!
Happy New Year Quilt peeps!
I hope 2014 was a great year for you and 2015 holds lots of new and exciting things for your future….and of course lots of quilts.
My local quilt guild recently had Mini-Quilt challenge where the only rules were to use our signature color and keep it 12″ square.
Have you ever tried to decide what your signature color is??? Not as easy as I thought…I love lots of bright and fun colors. I finally decided that the blue family was it for me, but wanted a little splash of pink….because that is very me too! I gathered all my random blue scraps and decided to let loose and just start sewing, pressing and cutting.
You may have noticed I haven’t shared a lot lately…..feeling a little uninspired and overwhelmed by life. I thought this project might be a way to let loose and see what happens. I really wanted to just let this project express what would naturally just come out of me. And that’s just what happened….kind of cool right! I feel a little crazy and blue, lost in the sea of what is happening right now, but I know that in the middle is still me….and it is a bright and happy me!
I did the same thing with the quilting….just let it out till it told me I was done.
Now before you go thinking I have lost it, don’t worry…I am just fine. I just thought it was an interesting approach to see how a quilt can be more than just a planned project and this is not usually how I approach my quilting for sure!
These quilts will also be in a quilt show here in February and I think they will make a fun exhibit. We had to add a 4″ hanging sleeve on the back for the exhibit.
HERE is a tutorial if you ever need to know how to do that.
So tell me what is your signature color for 2015???
Think about it….
Keep it Sassy♥
