New Year New Challenge
Quilts in the Attic, Teacher of the Year (17 questions and) and the Foto/Fiber 2012. I am also working on a website. I haven't had one in years and it's time. Anyway, while I do feel writing is being creative, I have missed being in my studio and playing with fabric. I decided to give myself a challenge so I dug out an old UFO. It was one given to me more than 15 years ago. I challenged a friend at one time to create something interesting with it but she passed so I'm doing it in her honor. The top is approx. 29 1/2 x 29 1/2 inches. I am taking my inspiration from Rayna Gillman's book Create Your Own Free-Form Quilts which has been getting a lot of well deserved buzz. I am considering this play and have no expectation of creating a piece of art. I just want to see where I can take this top and hopefully honor the unknown maker. What challenges have you given yourself for 2012?
