the squares-n-squares I had completed so far, but at the end of today I am not sure if the ones you see will remain. I also thought of adding some nine patches to the mix. I made a few, but quickly nixed that.
This put it up on the wall and see what happens isn't how I work as a rule. I like a plan, a scale drawing, a predetermined size all of which is generally based on an inner vision, so bare with me, this is really a very different way of working for me. And I have no idea of how it will turn out.
So why am I doing it, you ask? HUMMM. I guess for one, I needed something to do while I wait for my supply of print paste to arrive from Pro chemical and I can get seriously down to doing some dye painting on silk and for two, I signed up to take a one day class with Dianne Hires the first of next month that is being sponsored by a local quilt guild and I know that she works in this lets not look to far ahead manner so I am getting myself in practice.
Why am I taking a workshop from her? It is not so I can do what she does. It is more that I decided before I left Missouri that I would get more involved with the quilt community here early on so I won't feel so isolated and the best way to do that is to take a workshop, at least that way you know that the people you meet in the workshop are at least interested in something that interest you. I am also looking into art quilt groups but have not had any luck so far.
