Today I suggested a "backward loop", meaning that we would drive the reverse direction of usual...so Idaho City, Lowman, Crouch, Horse Shoe Bend. (150 miles of 25 to 45 mile per hour curves)
Oh...and it's Saturday. So the quilt shop in Crouch is open. Oh, and I have a $25 punch card credit waiting for me. Have I mentioned that Stitch & Snip in Crouch has a really amazing selection of batiks?
When I got home, I started laying everything out, working on a color gradation of light on top to dark on the bottom. The sections on the left will be cut in half to separate the other colors.
It's hard to see in this picture, but the sections that are in the middle (belly section) are by far the most textured patterns, which I hope will distract the viewer from my middle.
Am in the process of watching the Olympics and turning these strips into yardage for the dress pattern.
