This week I received an email notice about a new Yahoo art quilt group that was forming. It's a small group dedicated to creating one small quilt per week for one year, size, theme and materials are at at the discretion of each individual quilter. Sounds great. . so I joined. Since I had a pile of small pieces calling out to me for a few years, yes years, I thought I would try to whip something up tonight. Voila!
This group was just the kick I needed to do something with that small pile of black and white, red, orange, hot pink and Asian scraps . . . plus the stamped fabric reject. They were left over from a quilt top that I made during my 'boo-boo knee' year. But, it just always seems like there's a new idea to try, a new technique to try or a new yummy piece of fabric to play with, so these scraps just sat there staring at me for a few years, getting moved from one spot to another, always within reach and always with the intent to make something 'tonight'.
So, what better way to honor these patient and dear friends but to give them the place of honor that they so deserve. . . quilt #1.
