Art Journey with a Quilty Voice:
I here Voices. The Voices tell me to cut up Fabric. Good Fabric. Into small pieces. Small interesting pieces.
Then the Voices tell me to put them back together again. In interesting ways.
.... I must Obey ....

Yeah! New Project

One of the things I just love about starting a new project is the excitement of sewing together the first blocks. I may have spent hours drafting and picking out fabric for the new project, but nothing gives me a bigger thrill of seeing that first piece of fabric completely surrounded by seams from other fabric connected to it. What a rush!

Paper mockup to check full size scale (since I designed it on the computer and had only seen it on my computer screen until then)

I had designed the quilt for large scale prints, based on a design I had created earlier. I didn't have this quilt in mind when I bought the fabric, I bought them because I loved them so. But, once I got them home I dug out an old design I had sketched up and they were a perfect match.
