In between a flurry of travel and other summer activities, I'm contentedly stitching these small embroidered blocks with the Field & Forest pattern set (I introduced here). It's been great digging into my stash of fabric scraps again in the spirit of 'Use What You Have, since I don't really have a grand plan for this project.
In fact, it's all very random at this point. But while I'm concentrating on keeping my chain-stitches evenly spaced, and trying not to stab my finger with the needle, I am envisioning a colorful quilt, a sort of lap throw, of embroidered blocks connected by strip-borders constructed Log Cabin style. Well, more or less. Keeping in mind, that none of my blocks are the same size and they are not square. The result being more abstract than the traditional quilt block. Also my fabric strips are a bit random, as I'm just pulling "left-overs" together.
So, no telling what's going to happen here. We shall have to wait and see where this leads. It could be wonderful. It might be tragic. But I guess that's what makes this little experiment so exciting!
