Somethin' on the Wall
Still I moved along on the piece. Looking at the scale of the last arch I did, I thought I might make this one a bit larger. I don't know - I just like working with pieces that are around 36 - 45 inches. With that though, I needed to use some of my bigger hand dyed fabrics. With the palette of golds, browns and magenta as an accent - I really had to dig through my stash. It was fun though, pawing up the cottons. It was like getting reacquainted with an old friend. I did manage to use quite a few pieces I dyed myself last year - yay!!
Anyways - after a week or so - I manage to get the basic design done. I didn't pin it totally down because I want to let it cook while I'm out of town. I'm sure it will need some adjusting when I get back from Quilting on the Lake.
