Today my art group met. We have been floundering for a bit, just dabbling in various techniques but without a real plan. Today we decided that we are going to start the exercises in Jean Wells' book Intuitive Color and Design in Art Quilting. I have recently purchased some solids with the idea that I would try some free piecing ala Gwen Marston or Jean Wells, so this plan suits me perfectly.
Needing to actually sew something, today I started this.
Why? Just because. I'm using some of the wool I was gifted 3 years ago and this variegated pink to red thread I bought at my LQS. I just cut a piece of wool about 8 1/2" by 9", sprayed my batting with Sullivan's Spray Baste and started stitching. Here is a photo without the thread on top.
I'm not sure I like the circle applique so I tried another fabric.
I like this one a bit better, but maybe I don't want an applique at all. I'm just playing so we'll see how it goes. I have already sewn the first circle down and don't feel like taking it off yet. There is still plenty of time for that.
