It has snowed nearly every day the past two months. The sun has come out rarely though it made an appearance today; something it only seems to do when we register single digits. So this week I decided it was time to bring out the bright colors and have some fun.
I’m working through some exercises I have designed for an upcoming class. I like to have several samples to share with the class. This is a grid exercise and I decided to play with free-form log cabin assemblies.
I keep my scraps in clear plastic shoe boxes and I like to start my piecing using scraps. I can always cut from yardage is I can’t find what I want in the scrap box. I grabbed four boxes holding favorite colors: green, red, purple and turquoise.
Its stitched and back on the design board while I contemplate a matching or contrasting binding. I have flipped it around several times before decided which way was up!
I’m repeating the exercise with red as the predominate color and more contrast. I am having a blast and the bright colors have put me in a happy mood.
