And slicing some more....with gusto, I might add!!
And then it was over.....my project was in pieces!!! Later that day I read a beautiful post by Diane of O'Quilts and thought yes, there is anger in grief.
In a much calmer state, two days later.....I naively thought, I will just pick up these beautiful pieces and put them in a nice calm background and that will be the end of it. The pieces will be picked up and put back together, hopefully creating something beautiful.
I'm testing out or trying to develop some ways to set quilted pieces into backgrounds.....more on that later.
Here's me calmly playing....
Things are working out rather well....
Along the way, I modified the method slightly, making things simpler and faster.....and then, I hated it. Oh, Oh, me and my rotary cutter.....well, I imagine you know the rest.
Yup, everything in pieces on the ground.
Then it came to me....when something is cut or broken in pieces, whether it be your quilt or something else, it's just not a matter of putting it back on a calm background....things might just be a little more complex than that....and not all that calm.
Hmm....with that thought in mind, I'll be trying something else.
P.S. All was not lost, my QAYG method development is coming along nicely.
