Piecing the sky

Back at it again, after a few detours with classes in the first few months of the year (both as learner and as teacher).  Having finished everything else on my "to-do" list, I was able to play with fabric on the weekend and started piecing the sky for those quilts I planned in January. 
 

Remembering what I planned to do.

Experimenting with colours and shapes.

Step one:  place and sew.


Step two:  press. 
Repeat steps one and two multiple times.


Just as with paints, I played with the colours of fabric, and am still not sure if I have the right ones.  However, this is really only the base layer and I can change fabric, add stitch and, if all else fails, cut the quilts up to make some really fancy potholders!
