I had a difficult year. The result was that I did almost no art work since April.
Sketching was my ‘toe in the water’. My impetus was a desire to work with colour and design. My method was to leave the sketchbook and soft pastels sitting on the table where I walk by many times a day ... it takes 5 minutes to make your mark! This was the original idea: Finally, the spirit moved me to turn a sketch into an 8"x8" Abstract Challenge quilt. The topic is 'warm'. The method was reverse applique. I did it free motion on my new Innova 18" frame machine. It took about 2 minutes to sew and the stitches are perfectly even! Note: I've never have been able to repeat an idea ... not even my own design!
