Company blew in and out again. I thought the laundry was going to follow them. Phew!
I had to dismantle my series vignette from the guest room and I am a thinking that if it is taking this much time to get around to starting, it ain't gonna happen. I think series is a wonderful concept but perhaps my 'art' series time has not yet arrived. But I DO want to try working in a series.
A series is a body of work connected by a common idea. The idea can grow from what if next time... or it can be
just one idea that is fully explored. But it is basically a variation
of one subject. But it should come from a natural inclination and
interest. My natural inclination is a simple shape and the modern fabrics that keep winking at me. ;-)
I dug through my design/inspiration file because I remember making a copy of something concerning working in a series that featured quilts. It has survived all the various editing of my numerous files. I saved a Century of Progress block idea that has lots of options but I think I'll start with a simpler block.
Square in a Square is a favourite. I certainly like diagonal square and I made a big quilt using it. But I am thinking the block on the left so I can explore log cabin variations. Lots of what if's!
The first step is to make a completely finished traditional quilt and proceed from there.
I went to my handy dandy ufo busting list and I need a summer lap quilt for my master bedroom! This will be fun and I'll try to remember to keep the window closed when the design wall is needed!
This past week has been busy and a tad stressful. The Rooster and I have gotten a great start on the spring yard work but now we get to take a pause. Looks like spring has been blown off the track by a winter squall. Gee, I can take a bit of a breather!!!
