Details...


After finishing up the two quilts for Mr. U's office, I have embarked on a new project... so far, I am calling it "bits and pieces" but that will change...

I spent a good deal of time last night and this morning (skipping the gym... AGAIN!) to cut up bits and pieces of fabric and overlap them on a background of white fabric with a layer of Steam a Seam 2 on it...

And this is where I am at right now...

lots of bits and pieces


There are a lot of pieces which are daintily anchored to the background...

But I am hoping to figure out how to keep it all together. I have read where some artists use tulle but I am not sure how to do it....

aaahhhh... the details!

And speaking of details, I am still developing my plan for "Workbook Wednesday" using this book, as I mentioned in my last post, as a guide...
Art Quilt Workbork by Jane Davila and Elin Waterston borrowed from the library

I have had several readers express some interest in joining me on my adventure and still hoping for a few more!

If you would like to come along too, grab a copy of the book from your local library or from your favorite book supplier!!! Soon, you will need a sketch book and a supply of pencils as well.

I have developed a 'button' for this journey which is posted on the left side bar of my blog, if you would like, but I haven't quite figured out how to make a 'grab a button' code box...

Workbook Wednesday

aaaahhhh.... the details!

Still working on those!!!!!

Have a great day full of details!
