WIP #6 ~ The Starting Idea Of My Dyed Fabric Quilt

Can you say a fabric is luscious? I sure did when I received my order from Vicki Welsh’s shop! (Vickiwelsh.com) If you love the look of dyed fabric this is the place to stop in and look around. I found this wonderful piece of Pueblo brown and I ordered some of her standard packs of yellow, yellow-green, and red-yellow.  You really have to see the brown in person. Has a lovely movement to it!

I don’t design by looking at a fabric to see what I can come up with. My usual design method is coming up with a design then looking thru my fabrics.  This time I wanted to make something specific for this fabric.

I see a photo or something in a magazine and think that would be a beautiful quilt. I then get out my sketch pad and rearrange or add something to it or just change the whole design. I don’t like to copy anyone. So doodling on my sketch pad I came up with this little design that will be made larger.

Now I will have to figure out where I will put which colors and the size of it.
