As mentioned previously, I got mega inspired by the visiting Victoria Findlay Wolfe and her big-pieces-pieced-quilts. When I saw the large sections of printed fabrics, set off nicely with solids, it was the nudge I needed to consider using my collected prints. I have a lotta striped fabrics and Kaffe Fassett prints and of course lots of solids to add to the mix. But I hesitate...why? Good question. Dawgs mostly. But geesh, should that keep me from playing around with ideas and maybe actually trying something? NO!!
I was about to draw up some ideas and grabbed my current sketchbook (full of knitting designs, hmmm) and saw that I had so many nice ideas all ready for me!
This one below is a drawing that I made today, which would use really large squares and strips. Maybe no stripes at all in this one. The stripes in the designs above would not be stripped-sewn fabrics, but printed stripes, just so you know. I just don't want to get fussy and have to have lots of little pieces to sew together. Not yet anyway.
And then of course I saw this improvisational design. Woowoo!
