I love putting groupings of fabrics together with the possible intention of creating something from them.
As I settle in I felt the need to play with my fabrics.
I spend time organizing them each time I add new fabrics to the collection here.
For this grouping I started with the center fabric and added other fabrics I thought could work. You could call that center fabric the theme fabric.
I may or may not use these fabrics in the same piece.
I may add other fabrics as necessary to make this work. I am quite certain many won’t make the cut….pun intended.
Playing with fabrics is truly a happy time for me, I even enjoy the uglies.
I used to tell my students “Every quilt needs an ugly”.
What I meant by that is if you liked everything equally well they were probably too similar.
One person’s ugly can be another person’s beauty. It’s all in the eye of the beholder/artist.
This is a perfect time of year to start a new project.
