Colour Play Exercise

>> Saturday, June 11, 2011

An inspiration print - an extra piece from cutting out backing panels for my Lady of the Lake.

I reached into my scrap bin that holds all of my recent off cuttings. It's pretty full right now.
I dug right down to the bottom and kept pulling out pieces that matched the colours in the print.
It was harder to match other prints, but surprising how many fabrics did go with it.

I was really surprised at how many greens I had. I always feel like I don't have enough greens. Obviously I'm wrong!

I left this up on my design wall for a couple days to enjoy looking at.

I finally convinced myself it didn't have to
BECOME anything.

The PLAY was the THING.

All the pieces are put away again. Waiting for another play date.

Have you PLAYED with your fabrics lately?

With Joy,
Sarah Vee

How fun!! I just love that fabric pool, too. :)

I play a lot - make a lot of messes. Go to clean them all up, but get caught up playing again. . .

::sigh:: I have a real problem with fabric ADD ;D

Funny Sarah, I found out I had lots of greens too when I started organizing by color.

That will be a pretty backing. You may have to make it like a huge inprov block. Wonder how that would work out.
