I’ve spent much time working at home this winter as my studio was too cold. As a result I have accumulated much cloth here at home. I’ve been sorting it out and in doing so realise that I have a commitment to using every last scrap of fabric, putting it to good use! So I am connecting with this age old quilting tradition. The next issue is : how to organise all the little and larger pieces so they are readily available and accessible to use. It feels a little OCD (!) but I see it as a challenge, to make the most of what is here, for my working space and working process to function well. Also as I view the shapes I can see how a quilt may well create itself! whether just to use what is present in front of me and let the shapes determine themselves organically or to cut and shape things myself. The smaller the shape, the more limited the choice? It will be an interesting process.
