I find that I often start out with an idea and a color theme in mind when I start working on a new piece.
How do you start out?
Do you pick the design and then go look for color or does the color dictate to you what will happen?
I have recently been doing more piecing projects.
This is a glimpse at a piece I did this week.
I haven’t had much time to work on art and I enjoyed doing this piece. It is only 12″ square, but a very good size to practice on.
I am going to spend a few hours tomorrow quilting on it, and perhaps donate it to an auction if it turns out well enough.
This is a new technique I have been working on and I want to perfect it before I start a really big piece that I have had on my design wall for some time.
Aren’t these colors just yummy, this is what I used to create Hickory Nut Leaves.
Beautiful colours! Last weekend a friend and I went to a gallery and there was a gorgeous piece of glassware in turquoise and raspberry…much more muted than your colours…and I decided that I want to make a QAYG quilt in those shades. I love your new piece and it will be highly sought after should it go to auction!
I have never made a qayg quilt you’ll have to tell me what you think.
