Finally, I had a good productive studio day. Its amazing what a little sun will do! I'm having fun with this lesson on line. I've been meaning to do this design forever and to see it materialize on my wall is great. (See first post on this project here)
Now for you that didn't realize - for my Master Class with Elizabeth Barton - I have to come up with three designs for each month's lesson by the 10th of the month. Then we have to block out our design in the next 10 days and finish the piece by the end. Now that doesn't sound too bad if you're doing something little - but doing a 50" by 50" - it gets a bit hairy!
With no time for vacillating - I gotta figure out where I'm going from here. I mean I could -
- Make the bricks blue and green and the lines between dark brown
- Make the bricks shades of brown - the lines between dark brown
- Make the bricks shades of brown, blue, green - the lines between dark brown
- Make the bricks shades of brown - the lines between dark blue and green
One thing I do know is that I do need more solid dark brown fabric - its a huge waste to dye up dark brown like that when you can't tell the difference between a commercial solid (although my dyed fabric is a lot better quality!)
Anyways - I'll have to make the decision by Thursday which will be my next solid studio time.
See other great design wall's at Judy's Patchwork Times!
