I havent posted anything here since Easter. I havent really done a lot of sewing either but I did get to go peek at a second quilt exhibition with Caroline and another expert quilter Kate.
When I am not cringing because I know how poorly my hand stitching compares Im avidly soaking up the visuals. The fabric choices people make fascinate me. What makes your heart leap in the fabric department?
I think for me I like colours and fabrics in the same way I like paint, or paintings I suppose is more accurate. The bright and light palette in an impressionist painting drawing my attention sooner than the dark sombre colours of a constable. I think its the light, the way paint and fabric can reflect light and create a rich atmosphere. colour that is pure attracts me colour that invigorates.
I appreciate the primary colours their simplicity and honesty, strange word to pick perhaps but the primary colours shout "we are basic honest fundamental to the world" Caroline I must say uses them to perfection!
So next adventure will be a fabric shopping trip and I'm very excited to see what is available and what choices we all make.
