Embracing Process: One Rectangle At a Time

Sometimes it seems to help the creative process to work on several projects at once, so while I continue finishing the big quilted piece about my Irish grandfather I have been working on this simpler block piece with rectangles made of fabric and paper.  About six months ago when I was not sure what I wanted to do next, I started making these rectangles separately, just fooling around with little abstractions and enjoying playing with color and texture.  They are arranged here with pins; I still need to sew them down.  The ribbons in blue and red are bias tape just draped somewhat randomly – I just wanted a sense of movement.  We’ll see how it turns out.  It’s about 5′ by 5′ and I have no idea about whether or not it will need a border.
