BEGINNING A NEW SERIES (AGAIN AND AGAIN)

I finally got the last commissioned quilt off to the quilter and am waiting for my silk velvet to arrive and decided (art making is decision making) to go through my basket of little stuff and clean it up: refold, reassign, reorder.  Then I decided to make a few small quilts for framing for my holiday show and am calling the series: SMALL CONSTRUCTIONS FROM THE RAG BAG.  This is how  I begin.

I have 2 bits beings sewn together here and that heap of rags… I used to call this container “great bits” but lately its just the rag bag.  There are some nice pieces hiding in there.  My framer gave me a fab frame she had misordered the size and I made this little construction to fit in it.

I just finished this second little piece and am ready more or less to quilt them and emerge from my basement studio.

It is always interesting to see how these bits from other projects recombine and make a life of their own.

  1. Fun stuff, Cherie! I used to call my “rag bag” box of small stuff, my “compost pile”. Still have a box of great stuff labeled as such. I recently began incorporating hand dyed fabric into my canine oil paintings. You can see one example on the front page of my website. All have turned out great, so far!
    Sew on, dear friend!
