|Pier 9" X 13" 2013|
I love scraps so much, so much that I will fill a book with how much I love scraps. My bins are overfull at the moment, so it's time to make something with them again.
The Pier piece above, came from someone's little strips. I started sewing them together, and they started looking like a pier so I went with it.
If I decide to make an abstract piece, I usually like to see something representational in it. Then it grows.
This time I saw a pier with a shack on it emerging.
The embellishment says "Reality has limits Imagination is boundless"
|Reality has limits Imagination is boundless|
The hope was to sell them. I have a hard time letting go of my work and thought if I made them to sell, it would be easier. I'll be able to sell Pier. I will.
I'm now attached to many of the others.
I admire "process people" who are done with a piece when the binding goes on. While I love the process & need to make, I love the final quilts even more.
What about you?
ps please look at the post from yesterday. Tell me what you think of that bark! Is it from a Sycamore Tree? .
