Never one to work on one thing at a time I have a lot going on in my head at all times…
To be honest, it just happens that way, I'm powerless to control the urge to design.
When I was in Paducah, I bought fabric for 4 projects…. as I walked the aisles I picked up bolts of fabric that I knew would work well in my new projects…
(a couple of friends who travel with me think it's rather funny to see me in this mode, and made very rude comments)
Drawing with thread project.
Scrap book Quilting project.
Fabric for a new collage….
This first project inspiration arose from my visit to the Getty…..
It's large, it's 6 ft X 3 ft…. and I had to prepare the image this morning and get it up on the wall for inspiration…
It's fifteen A3 prints, (in the US that's "legal" size I think)
My printer prints out large images… but I have to work on a PC to do it, the mac doesn't allow the manipulation of poster printing…
I have fabric that will need some aging, it already looks like old parchment but I need to work on it….and in reality it will be a really big version of the Alphabet blocks….drawn directly onto the fabric and quilted. A wholecloth you could say.
The other quilt will be a collage. A very large collage…however, I will take poetic license and add more detail…. The fabrics below are some that I purchased. I design as I walk the aisles of the shop….!!!
The next quilt is Scrapbook quilting. You may remember I did some of these samples earlier in the year.
Amongst others, I'm using Harvest Home, by blackbird designs for Moda.
The next project is a small project based on my work on the Bayeux Tapestry Quilt.
This is the project that we will do on the cruise around Britain. The ship docks in Normandy for the day and I hope some people will join me visiting the original tapestry.
This fabric is called Patisserie by Fig Tree quilts and Moda.
