My guild had a fantastic speaker last week, Andi Perejda, she is really a wonderful creative person. Ann (my bestest of friends) and I decided to take her workshop at the Orange Quilt Bee so we played hooky from work Wednesday and joined the fun.
I have decided to shadow the circle with some grey fabric in my stash, then for boarders I am putting together some pieced lines that are suppose to be star bolts shooting down from the sky, using the 2 pinks and some more gray's. I think my quilt universe is coming together.
The center of the circle needs to be special. Taking cues from our teacher who loves hand dying fabric. This weekend Ann and I are going to delve into fabric paints to try and come up with appropriate centers for the focus block. I have a collection of fabric paints that I have put together in anticipation of a creative moment... so we are going to use them. Look at the prices on the packages.... most are from Tuesday Morning... see why I had to pick them up?
