It usually starts with a pile of fabric.
Something sharing process is just what I need to get me out of a funk. I had a bad experience lately due to sharing one of my ideas. I was so happy for this individual to turn it into a reality. However, the individual took full credit in front of me when asked how the idea originated…so please tread softly on what you see in anothers process and take credit only where credit is due. Otherwise it feels icky.
I often make small mock ups of what my idea might be. I encourage my students to do the same. A tweak here, trying a different value there can make all the difference. This was my original idea and I like it…but I don’t LOVE it. The chambray too dark and the solid green not big enough. It actually has been picked apart.
This one below I LOVE. The values are good and it’s got some potential pop! The small mock ups usually make it into a pillow or a baby quilt. The pile of scraps becomes a treasure too.
