Another day of leftovers...

     I have had a group of fabrics on my design wall for way too long. Just can't seem to move forward with it no matter which way I position the pieces. Now, it started out as one of those lovely compositions that you make at the end of week with Nancy Crow in Strip Piecing and Re-structuring.  I couldn't make the design work, didn't like the colors and was disappointed that I couldn't make it work.  But I feel obligated to do something with it. One thing I gained from that class is a boldness to try new things. So I cut it up once and tried this....

I sat back to admire my work and none of it was working. Who thought that  triangle was supposed to work? So, what's a girl supposed to do? I guess I keep boldly cutting up and re-arranging my leftovers. Happy sewing today.


  1. I like the potential of this one. Can't wait to see what you come up with.

  2. I love your site. Great job Colleen!! So, where is my Purdue quilt??

  3. Colleen - I'm teaching Can this Fabric Be Saved? at Fabrications (transforming ugly fabric with surface design) - would love to see you. In the meantime, talk to me about your process. Are you cutting up existing quilts tops or are you reconfiguring blocks? Glad I found your blog - e-mail me (my e-mail is in my blog profile) and fill me in -- I love what you are doing.
