Just in case you where wondering, NO, I have not disappeared off of the face of the earth. I am going though a bit of a creative slump these past few weeks. I have felt anything but inspired. And its rather depressing, which is very surprising since the weather is changing and getting warmer each day.
So, in the hope that something will trigger and inspire me to create, I made up a fat quarter sandwich and just started quilting random free motion quilting designs. It certainly has a therapeutic and relaxing effect on me, so I knew something had to happen after a bit of quilting.
I guess it worked a bit, because then I immediately wanted to try something I have never done before. Completely stepping out of my comfort zone, not following along a pattern or tutorial.
Improv piecing with a modern twist. Now, I am not entirely sure if it completely meets the criteria, but I like what I have come up with so far.
The idea I have is to create a few random blocks, and to fill the spaces between with white fabric, creating a lot of negative quilting space.
This is not necessarily the layout I am going to end up with, I might still rotate these blocks or swap them around. I like it so far, and am quite eager to get it done. I am however not going to rush this process.
I am using the 'Textures' range from Art Gallery Fabrics together with a few solids I have in my stash.
I hope you will have some input steering me into the right direction, what do you think, is this 'modern'?
