Summer is here and we take every opportunity to get into the back country. This day, we took our two grandsons on their first hike of the summer to Mystic Lake. Airus is 8 and Breckin is 5. We were not sure how the day would go, but it started out with a lot of enthusiasm and rushing water!
Another of my ideas is to cover the piece with straight (or almost straight) stitching. I am not sure what I want to do here, and maybe I won't actually make a decision until the snow starts flying, because it is time to get into the mountains!
Very often, I will attempt to answer my quilting design questions by working with a smaller piece. This is the last few scraps of the deconstructed red swirls I had, and I mixed in a few other hand dyed fabrics to make a workable size. I am not sure what to do with this. I have considered a lot of different things.
Well, I scrounged around in my studio and found a few more scraps of this fabric that had been used for other works in progress, and I managed to come up with enough to make a rectangle, of sorts. This arrangement has all the darker pieces grouped at the bottom. Not sure if this is the best arrangement, but I do know I like the landscape oriented rectangle much better than the square I started with.
