There is crazy and then there is CraZy! I decided at the beginning of 2016 that I was going to try new things. I never imagined this would be the 'new' that I would try!
One thing I love about quilting and quilters, nothing is off limits. You are only limit by your imagination.
For my second entry in the Blogger's Quilt Festival, I decided to enter ''Raw I' in the MINI QUILT. A mini that packs a punch, hits all the creative notes and for me, something that is totally outside the box!
You would think a bowl full of 'trimmings' couldn't be worth anything more than a good pleasing photo. I thought that...
A quilt that makes you question 'how small is too small'!
18" x 20"
The trimmings are 1/4" or less, but I was sure I could weave them. I ended up with 2 1/4" to 2 1/2" blocks that were full of possibilities.
After playing, arranging, stitching and fussing, I came up with a design I was proud of! It evolved over a period of time, something that I've come to appreciate and look forward to when working through a design.
The matched binding proved to be a little more difficult than I wanted it to be!
The lines on the left represent the first step in weaving. Strips. The 'X's became the process of weaving. Interlacing the fabrics together. A loose interpretation, but it is improv after all!
There will be a 'Raw II' one day, I have these ideas....Yikes!
