A Studio Is Never Finished–Part 3

Finding studio space for me can expand into any and every part of the house.
In this picture you see some fabrics I have recently dyed or painted as well as some from previous times.
When I play with fabrics like this I often find combinations of fabrics I would have never thought of putting together like these. They do have similar colors.]
Here is a very assorted group of fabrics that I am considering using, not necessarily all together.
Fabric is the thing that has been the starting point for me in my journey. I loved fabric as a child and have used it every since in one way or another. It fills my studio and inspires me to keep on creating and drawing my inspiration from it.
YES, it all starts with fabric, my own, commercial fabrics or some created by others.
And that my friends is WHY I need studio space!

I separated the studio from the house, yet I always have a bag--or 3, going back and forth. I think the most inspirational exercise anywhere is to spend an hour throwing fabrics together. Often I will mix several, laying then out on the floor to just look at for as long as I need. More often than not I put them all away later, but sometimes there is the most unlikely combination that sticks, and later finds its way into a project. I'm glad I'm not alone.

Thank you.

My work is always expanding all over the house too!

The serendipitous combinations of fabric are the best. So much fun to "discover" pairings of fabrics that weren't made or purchased together and yet work so well.

There's nothing quite like having your own studio...except having a supportive husband who appreciates your creativity. What a lucky bunch we quilters are!
