Back to Fabric

Well, I have been having fun lately with the jewelry making, but it is time for me to get back to fabric too! This is the beginnings of this month's Take it Further Challenge. I went with the color scheme again. The other theme was "what you can remember"--early memories about world events, etc. I will be dating myself here--I remember seeing Star Wars in the theater at about age 4, the Ronald Reagan presidential election in 1980--I was in 1st grade, and we "voted"--the Space Shuttle Challenger explosion in 1986 when we were called out of math class to go to the library to see the news coverage.

But anyway, nothing that I wanted to make a quilt out of, soooo, here was the color palate and my fabric selections. All except for the copper fabric were hand dyed by myself. I am making 2 pieces approximately 9 x 12 inches, and 2 postcards measuring 4 x 6 inches. This is the free form collage technique that I have been using recently, and I really enjoy the process. I have added more pieces to the larger quiltlets, and am in the process of doing the applique and quilting.
