Saving a UFO
Unlike Beth, I rarely finish anything before I am lured away to new interests. I used to beat myself up about that but now have accepted that free-spirit part of my personality. Because of my habits, I have tons of UFO's to choose from but I have decided to combine three pieces I created in my first Nancy Crow workshop. None of them are worth finishing on their own but could come together nicely in a free-form quilt.
The first assignment was to create a black and white motif sized at about 2 x 3 ft.
The second assignment was to use that motif to create a 2 x 3 ft piece incorporating whites, off-whites, black, and greys.
The third assignment was to create a 3 x 4 ft piece using the same motif and incorporating browns along with the previous whites, blacks, and greys.
To join with them I found these orphans from another quilt that will begin to give some color to the mix. These were cut back before I quit using a ruler to cut my fabric.
WISH ME LUCK!
