This weekend I took a quick trip up to the MQX show in Manchester, NH. For some reason I was less impressed than other years, although I did attend during it’s last three hours, so maybe that was why. There were some beautiful quilts, but I think I am of the opinion more is just more when it comes to some quilt designs. Sometimes one just has to hold back, IMO. Nonetheless, a few did get me to thinking. There were some lovely quilted plain non-cotton pieces. It looked like it would be fun to try a quilting design on a different type of material so I pulled out some saris that I happen to have and studied them:
I need to spend some time with a pencil and drawing paper for a while before I can decide for sure. I’ll also have to determine what function the completed project will have as I don’t like form without function.
So, right now, Millie is colorfully and exotically dressed while I ponder. Happy quilting and, finally, happy spring!
Good luck with your form for that beautiful material. 🙂 I went to the show last year and thought there was more thread for sale than anything else. Dare I say that? 🙂 I got about an hours of sashing done today but most of my day was spent outside. 🙂
LOL. They do have thread, but I bought nothing. 🙂
