Different techniques lure me almost as much as colour and fabric. I use swatches to play and push and think. Not every swatch is quilt worthy but the every swatch has value....even the "What WAS I Thinking??" ones. Hence the reason my blog is all over the map.
I have come to the conclusion that not every swatch is a work in progress, but rather an idea in progress. This might be just a way to rationalize the growing piles in my studio but I don't think so.
