(warning - a picture heavy post follows)
Our latest Tangled Textiles challenge theme was remnants. I had visions of all kinds of references to remnants - remnants of another time, remnants of another place, another life, with very creative and artsy results. But as so often happens, I ended up going in a completely different direction. As with most quilters, I have tons of scraps - I mean, really!
I have bags and bags of little bits that I just cannot seem to let go. These remnants of previous projects became the starting point for my current piece. I pulled out a bright selection, and they just said spring to me. Spring means sunshine (or at least it should - this year has been a little lacking in the sunshine :( so I figured I'd better make one)
Then, the figuring out how to fit them all together -
add a bit here, trim a bit there, insert a stem, and before you know it, you have a completed top, ready for sandwiching and quilting.
