Today is my birthday and I have been celebrating all weekend.
Saturday, we headed an hour North on the bikes into the mountains for lunch. Perfect temperature, but ominous clouds.
So I started by tidying up the sewing room. This created new distractions. I discovered that I had an entire drawer (bottom) of fabrics that I no longer love. They are older prints, some of which I have discovered the hard way fade easily. Others were gifts. Some scraps. And a lot of dark pink that used to be curtains. The more I cleaned, the more similar fabric I found.
The Root Connection regarding a Gee's Bend inspired quilt workshop that Sujata had been teaching. As y'all know, scrap quilts make me anxious. And I'm only good with random to a point. But I am good with spontanious. So I decided that random with rules was OK for me. The starting master plan was pink and green, substituting orange for pink and blue for green from time to time.
This was the view as I left for lunch with my sweetie. Kind of looks like a fabric store barfed on the floor.
Posting these photos helps me to figure out the next step. I think I'll add the green round I had planned, then piece them together, using the remaining strips I have ready for a border to hold everything together.
