So I've taken on a fabric pack biggie: redesigning Haze Kilim, a lovely quilt made from handwoven stripes that are no longer available. It has the effect of a kilim rug and the nubbiness of the woven cloth adds to that feeling. (You can google it, I don't know the rules about stealing photos and can't afford to go to prison since Himself refuses to walk the dogs in my absence.)
So here I've been, working the current and soon-to-be-available harvest of woven stripes into a new quilt. What holds my interest is the process. You start with about 25 different pieces of fabric, each consisting of its own little treasures of color:
Now comes the fun part. You sew the strips back together to create brand new sheets of fabric. Eight different hues, two families of light and dark. Here are two of the lights:
You then zoom in and focus on various areas of each sheet, cutting triangles so that each becomes its own color story (Liza's most excellent design term!).
