For a while now I have been attracted to the improvisational piecing work that is out there and yesterday I decided to give it a go. Some quilters will undoubtedly find it a little too much, while others who love the process will find it bland. I made a conscious decision to stick with straight lines and use the rotary cutter for my first attempt. It's funny how I can be so free with paint and mixed media but I find it hard to escape the boundaries of 'proper quilting' rules.
I have used a color scheme of turquoise, mossy green and orange. I really like the work being done using solid colors, but since I had these fabrics on hand, I wanted to use them. Also, the background will be the soft grey because that was in my stash. I'm already planning another one using pink and orange, my current favorite color scheme, and I'd like to try cutting things a little wonkier. Baby steps.
It can be a messy process.
I'm off now to do a little yoga and then go out for my errands and Friday lunch.
