I’ve been very negligent when it comes to any form of writing, so I decided to just own up to it here and see if that changes my committment. It’s so easy to post on instagram and then simultaneously load it to Facebook and Twitter– really it’s way too easy! Maybe Each pictures may be worth a thousand words, but really, they just might not be right!
For example, I got together this very sophisticated palette of 5 shades each of 8 hues of tee-shirt materials to make an updated Tree of Life Quilt.
My first attempt with the fabrics produced this quilt:
I knew I could take it further by layering the quilts pieces on top of each other and made this one:
I accomplished my goal but now was left with lots of leftovers. What should I do with them? The range of colors reminded me of this quilt that was featured in this poster, made over 30 years ago:
Envisioning and updated version, I came up with these 12- 8 pointed stars:
And with still enough leftovers for another top, I looked back to another star variation I know works no matter the remaining colors, this sunburst:
Have I made my point? A post on social media does not begin to explore my process, like a blog post. It takes more thought but well worth the effort. Enjoy!!
