Crash Course In PInk

August 6, 2014

My quilting friends do not think of me as a pink person. I don’t think of myself as a pink person. Then I sorted through my pink collection.


There's more where this came from

This is the bag I will use for the next Progressive Project, the one that gets circulated around the group until everyone has had a chance to work on it. I thought I would toss some pinks in the bag just to see how much I had. The bag is half-full and I still have more.


More pink

More pink


And more.


Still more pink

Still more pink


And more.


Even this may not be all of it - I just stopped looking

What with a family reunion and a few other deadlines, I haven’t had enough creative energy to figure out what sort of project I want made from all this pink stuff. That’s my job for the coming week.

Luck and wisdom!

The Surface of Infinity

April 17, 2013

The title of this blog is the theme of the next Challenge project. I’m not complaining (mainly because it is my idea) but I wish I had known before I issued it that the universe was just messing with me. I read the line in a book about philosophy, science and religion and lost all track of the argument being presented as I considered what the surface of infinity would look like if translated into fabric. I even had an idea of where to start . . . but I’m getting ahead of myself.

My personal challenge for the last few years has been to make the assignment from fabric I’ve already got. I give myself extra points for adapting a project I had already started. My plan for this assignment was to use my extensive collection of gray fabrics, maybe even create a gray series. As well as the fabrics from my gray tote bag, I also had these:

gray fabrics


As I separated the fabrics, waiting for them to tell me what to do, I noticed one of the pieces had a little bit of pink. That reminded me of my pink, black and gray collection:


pink and gray fabrics


– and my pink and brown collection:

So I guess my assignment should have been called “the surface of infinite possibilities” – which, now that I think of it, is a very good description of my sewing room.
