stitching and stitching some more

IMG_7544There is the sense, with this Global Warming panel, that I could continue quilting for as long as time permits. The process of ‘connecting up’ some of the lines and colors between rectangles could just go on and on and on. Nevertheless, I think it is nearly done.IMG_7453 IMG_7455 IMG_7456 IMG_7457 IMG_7460Down in the studio, I have MANY other sections of this series pieced up and ready for something. Pondering, as I clean downstairs, what will become of them. Maybe some sections will stay very small. Maybe others will be surrounded with white. We’ll see.

surround this with white?

      Thank you, Nancy… I love vibrant color, it’s true, and jumbled prints… but I am wanting simpler design these days which is part of why all the unfinished pieces of the series pose a bit of a dilemma. I want to go another way.

    Well, you can go another way and just leave this with me! I love it and wonder if you could describe the technique a bit…are you hand appliqueing small squares to a small base and then the base fragments together on yet another base?

      At this point I am just quilting. But the top was made in what I call ‘hybrid fashion’ — some straight up piecing, some piecing that captured applique edges in the seams, some ‘pure’ applique (fabric cut outs laid on top of pieced sections and stitched on). Almost, but not all, of the applique is rough edge.

    thank you Joe! Appreciate the look-in and comment.

    And, Mo – what are wild things? the Global Warming panels? or the way the process can assume a life of its own?

    DEE! in love
    i think i know what you mean by wanting to go another way but the colors
    i think my problem is a little bit the same
    a bit color AND a bit eco
    you don’t have to make a decision?
