Auditioning Fabric

I spent some time today auditioning fabrics for upcoming quilts featuring digital images. I have no idea yet how big these pieces will be. The first thing is always to select the possible fabrics to use, then see what develops.

There's a fourth piece-to-be in this bunch -- for some unknown reason I couldn't get the image to resize properly. Anyhow, perhaps the group will constitute its own series, or maybe I'll design the four pieces as panels to go together into one larger quilt, or some such arrangement.

It's been a long, lovely day. My friend Jan finally arrived mid-afternoon. After catching up, relaxing a bit and then having supper, we retreated to my office to do some photo work on our computers.

And tomorrow we'll collage and dye!

Interesting and beautiful fabrics. I am really looking forward to seeing the cloud one done. Have a lovely time with Jan collaging and dyeing.

I'm sure you put these fabrics and images together effortlessly, right? They are lovely. I'm undecided between the trees and the clouds as to which is my favorite. I'm sure you'll do a fabulous job with them. I can't wait to see.
