This is what I've been working on. It's the "Challenge in A Bag Mini Quilt Swap." I've had Abbie's bag of fabrics for quite some time now and the deadline is fast approaching. So I finally sat down a couple days ago and came up with this. I can't show you the whole thing yet. Not until it is safely and happily living at Abbie's house. I sure hope she likes what I did with her fabrics. I am pleased with the result.
It was a bit unnerving working with fabrics a little outside my comfort zone. And only having a limited supply of fabrics in odd shapes and sizes I really had to get my creative juices flowing. I just had to jump right in and see where it led.
I don't mind doing that so much when I have more control on fabric choices and I know if it doesn't work out I can always trash it and try another route...not that I've ever done that, but knowing that I can if I need to gives a bit of comfort to the whole process.
I really like being challenged like this, especially when it works out so well (hopefully Abbie agrees).
I get so caught up in the creating process I forget that Abbie is also working with my fabric and will be sending me a mini quilt too. Can't wait to see what she's making for me!
