This is where it all started for me but times change and now all of my blogging takes place over at my
Quilt Routes blog and I hope you will join me over there.

Beginnings


"My World is Green" is the title for next year's Sue Ridgewell Challenge. I began this yesterday, using up scraps. No newly painted fabrics in order to keep in with the topic.


To prove that it is a good idea to come back to something the next day, you can see where I have removed the top strips because they were not working for me.
I decided to use this technique of strips after doing this small piece.


 However AFTER doing this I saw THIS, which I absolutely love, but was also a little sad to know that I am not doing something new! LOL!


I am also going to be working on this, which was going to be my first choice for the challenge.
I have wanted to a larger version of my stitched sea/landscapes for a while and thought this would be a good time to do that. However, they are very stitch intensive and decided not to put any time constraints on when this one would be finished. It could take a while.

  1. Lovely! I really like your use of strips of fabric and color. It can stand by itself or as a background. Just beautiful.

  3. I really like those backgrounds and the dyed fabrics you use, it really makes such beautiful art pieces. I have collected some nice batiks, now i need to think about some designs for them.

Thank you for taking the time to comment. I do try to respond to each one but
if you do not hear from me it is probably because you are a "no reply blogger".
