Do you have this problem? Like a dog in a squirrel factory, I am easily distracted by colorful shapes. While clearing off my fusing table (a table covered with a large Teflon sheet) I notice these 3 shapes above. Everything comes to a standstill. What are they? What can they become?
My good intentions of cleaning up are forgotten in the thrill of discovery. Serendipity has brought the shapes together. My job is to play with the shapes and make sense of them. Finding other scraps of fused fabric, the composition begins.
An hour later this little scene is complete. Imagine the hand stitchery that will add movement and texture and detail to the piece! And as I gaze fondly at my new little quilt I realize this fact: I know nothing about sailing.
