I belong to the Chattanooga Modern Quilt Guild and we had our July meeting last Saturday. A couple of the gals brought in 'sketches' they did at Gwen Marston's retreat and they were wonderful. I got all excited about doing little tasty bits of piecing. Nothing that is a big drawn out project, just playing with fabric and neato-keen quilting.
My studio got rearranged for sewing and I brought out my boxes of scraps and started looking at colors. I found a large amount of already pieced bits, which I concluded could be unsewn and made into new and better compositions. One of the definitions of the Modern Quilt is to include lots more negative space. I'm all for that, as it sets off the design nicely. But I don't care too much for definitions, and staying within a prescribed parameter (surprised?). I enjoyed being neater than usual, however.
And our first ripe cantaloupe was delicious. It had fallen off the vine and I found it on the ground, ready to cut open and devour. Yum.
